Why First Chiropractic?
According to World Health Organization Chiropractic is holistic gold standard treatment for any muscular skeletal injuries or conditions. Dr Mehmet Oz states that PAIN is the number one reason patients go to the doctor. About 35% of Americans, pain escalates into a chronic problem lasting 3 to 6 months, or even longer. Approximately 50 million people in US are disabled because of chronic pain.
Unfortunately people are seeking pain management clinics, where they utilize pain killers and injecting a shot into affected area. People are not realizing that’s only temporally relief of pain and not correcting what is causing the pain. Along with any invasive procedures you are opening doors to very serious complications. According to a study in 2007 “Complications of Joint, Tendon, and Muscle injections” the most common complications appear to be infections that have been associated with virtually all kinds of injections. These infections include spondylodiscitis, septic arthritis, epidural abscess, necrotizing fasciitis, osteomyelitis, gas gangrene, and albicans arthritis. Other complications include spinal cord injury and peripheral nerve injuries, pneumothorax, air embolism, pain or swelling at the site of injection, chemical meningism, granulomatous inflammation of the synovium, aseptic acutearthritis, embolia cutis medicamentosa, skeletal muscle toxicity, and tendon and fascial ruptures.
Please keep in mind once invasive procedure has been done there is no going back. That is why Chiropractic is recommended first and if Chiropractic does not work for you, you can always go and seek pain management care.
