If you were to ask a person you’d just met to tell you about chiropractic, that person would likely describe it as a treatment for back pain. And odds are you probably know someone, perhaps a friend, family member or co-worker, who has overcome back pain after receiving chiropractic care. While we agree that chiropractic treatment is extremely effective at reducing or eliminating back pain, neck pain and joint pain, it’s important to know that our chiropractor in Garland TX can benefit your family in many other ways as well.
In 2003 the British Medical Journal reported on a 52 week study* that followed 183 patients with neck pain. These 183 patients were randomly assigned to receive either manual therapy (chiropractic treatment), physical therapy, or care from a general practitioner. The study demonstrated that the people who received chiropractic care missed less time from work and took fewer pain pills than those receiving care from a general practioner or physical therapist.
In addition to its broad range of applications, treatment also makes sense from a financial perspective.The treatment cost about two-thirds less than either physical therapy or the care from the medical doctor.
Chiropractors are pioneers in the field of alternative healthcare, promoting non-invasive and drug-free treatment options based upon well-researched science. For over 100 years, Doctors of Chiropractic in the U.S. have been providing safe and gentle treatments that help people feel better and enjoy stronger, more productive lives. Today more people recognize the value of chiropractic care than ever before, with over one million people visiting a chiropractor every year!
Chiropractic medicine treats more than symptoms
What differientiates chiropractic medicine from traditional Western medicine is the underlying philosophy. Chiropractors understand there is a vital connection between the spine and one’s health. When misalignments in the spine are corrected, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is activated.
Our Chiropractor in Garland draws upon those healing abilities to help restore mobility and fuction, while improving overall health.
