Conservative Care Options for Back or Neck Pain
Many people with back or neck pain who seek treatment from their primary care physician may receive prescription pain killers to help reduce their pain. Did you know that most pain medications come with side effects, some of which can be very serious? What other options are there for managing back and neck pain?
Conservative care refers to treatment methods which are non-invasive, have low potential for side effects, and are considered safe. Conservative care options for back and neck pain include chiropractic care, massage therapy, dry needling, and physical therapy. Any of these treatments, especially when use in conjunction with regular exercise and proper nutrition, help many people suffering with pain avoid using medications to manage their symptoms. Conservative care provides you the means to become an active participant in your health care team.
