Painkillers? Or something a little more adventurous?
We have heard it all before. It’s just wear and tear, you are getting older, you need to live with it…. Most of my clients, before finding chiropractic care, would then have reached for their favourite painkiller and “gotten on with things”.
A study in 2012, however, showed there is a much more effective option. By far, more effective than those favoured painkillers, Chiropractic care (and less so exercises) out-ran painkillers, by a massive margin, for their effectiveness in helping people feel better - both during the treatment cycle and for an extended period of time after treatment ended.
What does this mean for you? Well, wear and tear is not something you just have to put up with. Chiropractic care is safe and effective in helping you feel better and, more importantly, move better - Now and in the future.
Chiropractic cannot repair those worn joints, but it is really effective at helping you restore and maintain movement. As we age, who doesn’t want to keep moving? Combined with exercise, you are going to be working much better than your peers who reach for the painkillers, and you can avoid all those known side-effects of medication as an added bonus!
