Ask More Questions About Your Medication!

Updated: Nov 14, 2022

The healthcare system today is so quick to prescribe medication without offering the holistic, alternative measures that you could take to achieve the same results.


As Chiropractors, we can’t advise you on your medication - what to take, what not to take, etc. HOWEVER, too many people just jump to drugs without questioning the effect on them in the body.


Truth is - every drug has side effects. Some are minor and some are major.


But drugs aren’t always the right solution. Let me give you an example - if you are suffering from a disc herniation, sciatica, etc. the root of your problem is with your sciatic nerve. Often, MDs will prescribe a muscle relaxer for people with sciatica. The muscle relaxer WILL help the muscles affected by that nerve calm down. The muscle relaxer WON’T get rid of the problem because muscle relaxers work on muscles, not nerves.


It is more important to get to the root cause of your pain, rather than mask the symptoms. On the flip side, there is ABSOLUTELY a right time and place for medicine. Don’t stop taking the medicine your doctor prescribed, just use more caution and ask more questions along the way.
