Chiropractic is centered on the philosophy of enabling your body to naturally heal through spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes that encourage wellness. For Dr. Elganainy, this means working hard to restore your body's healthy performance to prevent the need for medications or surgery. We find that most of our Burton patients are relieved to find a natural approach for their health conditions.
One advantage of chiropractic is that it helps people minimize or eliminate the use of narcotics. Medications are commonly issued to people who have back problems. This is such a serious crisis that the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) issued a news release stating that opioid (painkiller) risks overshadow the advantages when administered for back pain.
Some of the most popular narcotics, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, include hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (OxyContin and Percocet), morphine, and codeine. Numbers presented by the AAN mention 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 difficulty of back pain and healing, especially if an narcotic addiction occurs.
Compare that to chiropractic care which involves natural healing and the advantages are crystal clear. While a drug might be helpful at briefly suppressing the discomfort of a health problem, it's not a solution to the problem. Drugs can't mend your injured back; it will only conceal the pain.
Dr. Elganainy will first examine you to get to the origin of your back pain and then work with you to solve the problem -- without risky medications.
