This Month, Don’t Live in the Madness!

Would you see a dentist for a problem with your eyesight? Would you see the orthodontist for stomach pain? Of course not! You go see a specialist, for that special kind of problem.
A “mad” truth is that many individuals assume that shoulder, back, and hip pain are merely symptoms of aging and just growing older. But they aren’t! These are physical problems that can be caused by things as simple as (bad) posture habits, sleeping in a funky position one-too-many nights, or that car accident 10 years ago.
Occasionally, some will complain to their doctors about these aches and pains; but frequently these issues are just treated, not corrected. Pain medication does help, but does it always FIX the problem? Can any chemical fix a physical problem?
Another “mad” truth is that taking pills for physical pain has led to a nation-wide opioid epidemic. The CDC recently reported that there were over 42,249 deaths related to drugs (opioids) in 2016 alone. That’s over a thousand more deaths than the average total of Americans that lose their lives yearly, from breast cancer (41,070).
Why treat a problem, when you could just as easily FIX it? Especially when the ‘fix’ is as simple as just seeing someone that specializes in physical problems (aka, a specialist).
Would getting a check-up by OUR Specialist be worth the fix of your problem, if we paid for it? Give our office a call, mention this article, and our Doctor will PAY for you to get your spine+nervous system checked!
This March, don’t live in the madness.
