Chiropractic is based on the principle of helping your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that stimulate overall health. For Haque Chiropractic Inc., this involves working hard to restore your body's natural functioning to prevent the need for medications or surgical treatments. We notice that most of our Livermore patients are pleased to find a natural approach for their health conditions.
One benefit of chiropractic care is that it helps people reduce or even eliminate the use of narcotics. Medications are frequently supplied to people who have back soreness. This is such a serious problem that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) dangers overshadow the benefits when administered for back pain.
Some of the most common opiates, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Statistics offered by the AAN mention the fact that about 50% of the people taking these types of substances for a period of three months are still dependent on them five years down the road. This can further complicate the problem of back pain and healing, especially if an opiate addiction arises.
Compare that to chiropractic care which features natural healing and the benefits are evident. While a drug might be useful at temporarily reducing the symptoms of a health issue, it's not a long-term solution to the problem. A drug won't mend your damaged back; it will only mask the pain.
Haque Chiropractic Inc. will first examine you to get to the source of your back problems and then work with you to eliminate the spinal interference -- without the need for risky medications.
