We live in a time when many people have become reliant on medication — both prescription and over the counter — as the answer to pain relief. The well-documented epidemic of opioid use and abuse affects ten of thousands of people yearly, resulting in addiction and overdoses.
Our chiropractor at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic wants you to know that there are natural, holistic methods of alleviating pain that don’t rely on potentially harmful, addictive medications. We encourage those who have not experienced the life-changing benefits of chiropractic to come in for a consultation, during which we’ll take the time to really listen to what’s causing your pain and explore your diet, lifestyle and family and medical history. We believe our patients are much more than the sum total of their symptoms, and we treat the whole person to provide short- and long-term healing.
After conducting a thorough examination, our chiropractor will use an array of hands-on healing techniques designed to bring the body’s nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments into alignment. Perhaps our best-known treatment is the adjustment, a gentle manipulation of the spine that is highly successful at reducing chronic back and neck pain, arthritis, headaches and conditions like scoliosis. Proper alignment of the spine is a key component of improving posture, flexibility and balance.
Does our treatment work? According to a recent study published by the National Library of Medicine, adults under chiropractic care were less likely to seek an opioid prescription than those who solely relied on their doctors.
Our chiropractor at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic firmly believes that under our care, your body has the ability to heal itself — without the potentially harmful effects of medication. If you have been suffering from chronic pain and have been searching for a natural, holistic path to healing, please schedule a consultation with our empathic, experienced, licensed, and accredited chiropractor. You’ll experience a high level of personal care and attention from the moment you first arrive!
