The standard medical approach to back pain varies depending on the severity of the condition. Muscle relaxers, painkillers, rest and physical therapy such as traction, diathermy, ultrasound, hot packs, and cold packs are sometimes used. This approach has not been found very helpful, however. The medical approach is necessary at times—even back surgery has a place. But many people who have had back surgery report a recurrence of their symptoms within a year or two and may return to the operating table. In some cases the surgery makes no difference whatsoever, and in some cases it does give long-term relief.
Chiropractors have helped millions of people with low back problems, often saving them from pain, disability, drugs and surgery. The chiropractor’s purpose is to make your spine and its nerves, discs and muscles healthier, stronger and more stable by correcting your spinal malfunctions.
Anyone suffering from a back problem should see Dr. Gondolfo to make sure there are no spinal malfunctions, and to have them addressed and corrected if found. This may make the difference between a life of ease, health and comfort or a life of pain, disease and disability.
Studies have shown that chiropractic works better, is safer, and is less costly than standard medicine for back pain. Why are the results so overwhelmingly in favor of chiropractic? Because painkillers, muscle relaxers, braces, physical therapy, and surgery are not designed to correct spinal malfunctions. Chiropractic is!
