I’d like to take a minute to discuss with you a natural noninvasive approach to treating your pain versus medicine, and to potential allergic reactions and side effects. Chiropractic is the number one noninvasive approach to musculoskeletal pain. By noninvasive, we’re referring to nothing goes in the body and there’s no negative side effects. The worst possible side effect is no outcome whatsoever, no change.

    By going to a chiropractor for musculoskeletal problems like neck pain, headaches, upper back pain, lower back pain, hip pain, or leg pain, people have found that their body heals more naturally. Taking a medication actually just masks the symptom, it does nothing to remove the problem.

Obviously, you don’t think that neck pain, or back pain, or headaches come from a Tylenol deficiency, so taking Tylenol is never going to fix it. It just covers it up.

    Then there’s the side effects. Some people actually are allergic to medications like NSAIDS and Ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and so they obviously can’t even take the medication, if they do, they can react very severely. Those people obviously need an alternative approach. Even if you don’t have allergic reactions to medicine, there’s the side effects.

People think that, because it’s over the counter, you can take medications like Tylenol and Ibuprofen forever and ever, and it’s absolutely not true. If you research it, the number one cause of liver failure in United States is taking acetaminophen, medications like Tylenol. The number one cause of kidney failure in the United States is from taking Ibuprofen such as Advil.

    So consider what the potential outcomes could be long-term by taking these over the counter medications on a regular basis, and if you consistently have the type of back pain or neck pain or headaches, that keep coming back, or that stay consistently for several days, a week, sometimes months, even years, then you really strongly need to consider seeing a noninvasive chiropractor, someone that can actually correct the cause of the problem so that it doesn’t keep coming back, instead of you repeatedly trying to mask the problem over years and possibly doing irreversible damage on the inside to your body.
