Safe, comfortable and effective chiropractic care can help you improve your workout by relieving pain. Even if you don’t workout, chiropractic care can help you relieve pain that you may have had for years.

Pain killers don’t address the issue, they simply mask the pain.
No matter how many pain killers you’ve taken, the pain always returns. The problem with most pain killers is that while they relieve pain enough to help you function, they can also can cause damage to other parts of your body when taken for long periods. Aspirin or ibuprofen may seem harmless enough, after all they’re over the counter drugs, but over long periods can eat away at your gut and create ulcerations. Depending on the medication,they even can cause changes to the small intestine that have deleterious effects on nutrient absorption, as well as kidney damage, heart disease and liver damage. Stronger medications for serious pain problems can dull your senses and leave you unable to function. A better solution is to find the cause of the problem and address it.
