The usual response to pain is to take painkilling medications. Mostly, this works quite well, especially for minor headaches and other trivial complaints. A negative factor is that these drugs can become less effective with frequent use and may also have serious side-effects, especially in large doses or if taken for an extended period of time.
Chiropractors understand and are trained to work with your body to produce natural healing, whenever possible. Once your body has fully healed, pain is naturally reduced or even eliminated. Other common factors such as bad posture or incorrect ergonomics will also be picked up, and you will be advised how to correct the situation.
Nowadays, chiropractors are highly respected for their pain management skills. They have an excellent record with difficult cases such as back pain, migraines, or sciatica, where painkillers have little effect. Their approach is highly professional, and relies on correct identification of the underlying cause of the pain.
Chiropractors are now cooperating in teams with surgeons and other professionals to provide the best possible care for their patients. This approach has been shown to be particularly effective as a single approach does not always have all the answers. In such cases a combination of different methods may often produce the desired results.
Your Kent chiropractor will be determined to do his utmost to resolve any painful problems. This may require extensive investigations, include X-rays or blood test to identify the causative agent. A positive identification of the cause of your pain will establish a sound foundation for effective remedial measures.
