Chiropractic: The Natural Approach to Back Pain

Henderson, NV chiropractic back pain treatmentChiropractic is based on the concept of aiding your body to heal naturally through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage wellness. For Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda, this involves working hard to restore your body's normal functioning to avoid the need for drugs or surgical treatments. We find that many of our Henderson, NV patients are happy to find a natural answer for their health problems.

One advantage of chiropractic is that it helps people reduce or eliminate the use of narcotics. Prescription medications are frequently issued to people who have back problems. This is such a serious problem that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a press release stating that opioid (painkiller) risks outweigh the advantages when prescribed for back pain.

Some of the most well-known narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Data supplied by the AAN cite the fact that about half of the people taking these drugs for a period of three months are still on them five years down the road. This can further complicate the issue of back pain and recovery, especially if an narcotic addiction arises.

Compare that to chiropractic which features natural healing and the advantages are crystal clear. While a pill might be helpful at briefly suppressing the discomfort of a health issue, it's not a solution to the problem. Drugs can't fix your damaged back; it will only mask the pain.

Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda will first examine you to get to the source of your back pain and then work with you to solve the problem -- without risky drugs.

If you're ready for relief of your pain, naturally, give our Henderson, NV office a call at (702) 990-2225 to make an appointment with Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda.
