Many people believe that Chiropractic Care and Medical Care are mutually exclusive, but nothing could be further from the truth. In recent years more and more hospitals and medical offices are incorporating Chiropractic care as part of their health delivery package. Combining these types of services could be the overall best option for many patients trying to find relief. If you are trying to fix your lower back pain and neck pain and you research all of the available treatment options, you will find that some medical treatments as well as chiropractic treatments are your overall best options.
Can you imagine a world where these two specialties work together to enhance each other and give a greater level of care to the patient? You could then choose from the menu of items after being educated on which option is best for you. You could receive one or any combination of treatments, whatever it takes to achieve your recovery. These treatments could be used alone or in combination depending on what is wrong with each person and their special circumstance. Perhaps the only problem is a muscle problem. Well that might respond best to just a mild anti-inflammatory with some physical therapy. If the joints themselves are injured and misaligned then chiropractic is the obvious choice. This could be done with or without pain medication or physical therapy depending on each individual case. For patients that are in significant pain they may wish to explore multiple options that include the use of medications designed to reduce the pain and inflammation immediately. This followed with a short course of chiropractic care and possibly some physical therapy will help to strengthen the supportive muscles that where either injured traumatically or just too weak to support the spine.
