Greenbelt Chiropractic Care - Always the Perfect Dosage

Millions of people around the world take medication to relieve their pain. These medicines can range from aspirin to NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib etc.) to powerful opiates. Medications typically follow set rules for dosing, based on such factors as age and weight. For example, a usual dose of pain medication is 2 tablets every 4 - 6 hours, no matter what the cause of or where you are feeling the pain.  For most medications (pain relievers especially), it seems that one size does indeed fit all. Additionally, there is a long list of side effects and adverse reactions to worry about.  And worry you should. Recently the FDA strengthened the warnings for NSAIDs stating that they pose a significant risk for heart attack and stroke. Millions of people rely on these medications for pain relief.  What can be done?

A better choice….

Chiropractic adjustments are tailored to each patient\'s unique symptoms, overall health, size, age, health history, etc. Chiropractic physicians undergo a specialized 4 year graduate education that stresses the entire person and individualized treatment. One size certainly does not fit all.  The adjustments performed on an elite athlete are quite different than those performed on a toddler.

The beauty of chiropractic care lies not only in the fact that one size does NOT fit all; but also because it is highly unlikely that a patient will overdose on care or suffer from unintentional side effects. Chiropractic is a drugless, non- surgical health profession that focuses on the nervous system and overall health and wellness.

In addition to maintaining wellness and optimum health, many patients in our Greenbelt Rehab office find relief from their pain; whether it is due to a motor vehicle accident, sports (or gardening) injury, repetitive strain, or simply those regular aches that a stressful life seems to bring.

So next time you suffer from pain, stiffness, or headaches, instead of reaching for a bottle of NSAIDs, reach out to us instead.  You can be assured of a customized, individualized, and side effect free experience.
