When considering health and healthcare in the United States, most would agree there are many issues to address.
Not only is the overall state of health in this country relatively weak, but our system of treating injuries, disease, and illness is focused on short-term care, after-the-fact treatments and quick fixes.
The Chiropractic community would like to change this model—and you can be a part of that change!
The Chiropractors at AICA Marietta offer our patients non-invasive and drug -free solutions to all too common conditions like headaches, neck pain, back pain and more.
Here’s a bit more on conservative care—and why it’s an important approach to improving your health and wellness.
What Is Conservative Care?
Conservative care means to take a moderate, safe and cautious approach to treating a health issue. Unfortunately, many people are told to seek expensive, aggressive and often risky treatments for all kinds of diseases and illnesses.
How Does Chiropractic Care Fit Into Conservative Care?
Chiropractic therapy is one of the best examples of conservative care as it is a drug-free, holistic, safe and non-invasive method to diagnosis and treat pain.
It also helps maintain and enhance overall health and well-being. Your expert Chiropractor uses gentle spinal adjustments and rehabilitating and therapeutic exercises to address pain and symptoms.
Also, Chiropractors can advise patients on great lifestyle, ergonomic and nutritional changes.
All Doctors of Chiropractic have undergone extensive schooling and training through nationally accredited programs, amassing a minimum of 4,200 classrooms, laboratory and clinical internship hours.
Who Should Choose Conservative Care?
While we can’t possibly say that a conservative care route like Chiropractic will treat all health issues, it should indeed be considered as a first (and hopefully only!) step.
Reducing the need for surgery or prescription medication could be critical to your long-term health. Of course, if your condition is best treated by another medical professional or method, your Chiropractor will advise you of this.
