Dr. Mercola recently wrote an article centered around a study that illustrated that chiropractic care and exercise are better than drugs.
Article at a Glance:
Medication is typically not the best option for treating neck pain. According to a new study, those who used a chiropractor or exercise were more than twice as likely to be pain free compared to those who took medication.
Exercise often leads to improved posture, range of motion and functionality of the body which may help treat the underlying source of pain, as well as help prevent chronic neck pain from developing in the first place.
Due to their comprehensive training in musculoskeletal management, numerous sources of evidence have shown that chiropractic management is much safer and often more effective than allopathic medical treatments, particularly for back and neck pain.
There is good reason to explore the many natural options available for relieving and healing pain before opting for medicated relief, as drugs carry a significant risk for side effects.
