Chiropractic care acknowledges the self-healing capabilities of the human body and attempts to restore those mechanisms to achieve better health. Western Medicine takes a more invasive and aggressive approach by attempting to alter the functions of the body through the use of drugs and/or surgery in order to “fix” the defective part.
Unlike drugs or surgery, Chiropractic treatment addresses the underlying causes that have reduced the body to a weakened, pained state. Once these problems have been identified and corrected, not only is the pain eliminated, but your body is working properly, naturally.
In many situations, conventional medicine is essential. Surgical intervention has saved countless lives and many of the technological advances are simply astounding. That said, there are issues concerning the over-utilization of such impressive, yet invasive procedures. Unfortunately, when these procedures are overused, the problems created are often more damaging than the original condition. The same can be said about the pharmaceutical industry, maybe more so.
Constant use of prescription drugs often leads to dependency and ultimately substance abuse.
