Chiropractic More Effective Than Drug for Back Pain

If you live in Salem, OR we can help you recover from back pain without the risks of drugs.

Although medications can provide temporary relief from back pain, they fail to address the actual root of the problem. Most back pain starts with some type of strain, stress, or misalignment in your spine, which is exactly what our chiropractors specialize in treating.

A new study in the prestigious medical journal, Spine, reports that if you suffer from back pain, chiropractic is more effective than a common pain drug, dicoflenac.

In addition, chiropractic is safe and doesn't have the risks involved with powerful anti-inflammatory drugs. Some of the side effects of dicoflenac include gastrointestinal problems, liver or kidney damage, and even depression.

Chiropractic is a proven effective way to treat both acute and chronic back pain. We work to determine the root of your pain and help your body naturally restore its normal function.

You don't need to suffer. Give Dr. Geary Michels a call today at (503) 399-7607, and see how we can get you back to a pain-free life.
