The Surgeon's Insight

As a surgeon, my primary focus has always been providing the best possible care for my patients. Over the years, I have witnessed firsthand the detrimental effects of opioid use as well as surgeries with less than ideal outcomes. Recognizing the need for safer alternatives, I have become an advocate for chiropractic treatment as part of a comprehensive pain management strategy.
In my book, The Opioid Alternative, I actually teach Medical Meditation! It’s also about alternatives to surgery, aggressive medical interventions, and Opioids all of which can have deleterious effects on your patients!
In other words, every medication you take, every surgery you have, every invasive procedure that is considered for you, even the “minor procedures”, the “safe ones“- have real and sometimes substantial complications.
Safer Medical treatments like Chiropractic, manipulation, therapy, meditation, semiflexible, dynamic, step-down braces, and moderate changes to your eating, exercise and stress-reduction is really all it takes!
Introduction: In the face of the current medical crisis, finding optimal medical treatment and finding effective alternatives for back pain, orthopedic injuries as well as pain management have become increasingly crucial. This article aims to shed light on the perspective of a surgeon who recognizes the benefits of chiropractic treatment as well as other noninvasive treatment options as a viable alternative to opioids and surgery. By exploring the potential advantages and addressing common misconceptions, we aim to promote a more holistic approach to pain management.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment: Chiropractic care involves hands-on techniques aimed at manipulating the spine and other musculoskeletal structures. It focuses on the body’s natural ability to heal itself and works to restore proper alignment and function. Here are some key benefits of chiropractic treatment:
1. Non-invasive and drug-free: Unlike opioids, chiropractic care relies on non-invasive techniques and does not involve the use of medications. This approach minimizes the risk of addiction, adverse side effects, and long-term dependency.
2. Targeted pain relief: Chiropractic treatment addresses the root causes of pain, rather than merely masking the symptoms. By targeting misalignments and imbalances in the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can help alleviate pain and promote the body’s natural healing processes.
3. Holistic approach: Chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to pain management, considering various factors that contribute to an individual’s well-being. This may include lifestyle modifications, exercise, nutrition, semiflexible, step-down braces, and stress reduction techniques like medical meditation, all of which can play a vital role in long-term pain relief.

Addressing Common Misconceptions Surrounding Chiropractic Treatment:

1. Scientific evidence: Chiropractic care has a growing body of scientific research supporting its efficacy in pain management. Numerous studies have shown positive outcomes in conditions such as lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
2. Compatibility with traditional medicine: Chiropractic treatment can work in conjunction with traditional medical approaches, including all of the above treatments, as well as semi-flexible braces and even with surgery. Integrating chiropractic care into a patient’s treatment plan can enhance overall outcomes and facilitate a more comprehensive healing process.
3. Scope: Chiropractic care extends beyond spinal adjustments. Chiropractors are trained to evaluate and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, offering a comprehensive approach to pain management and especially pain based on musculoskeletal and discogenic generated issues.

What are the Benefits of Using Braces instead of Opioid Painkillers?

As we all go about our business each day, life happens. Sometimes habits, accidents, or genetics lead to nerve problems and injuries that can cause pain throughout the day. Unfortunately, unless treated well, some of these injuries can require surgery in order to resolve the issue and set the body up for long-term healing and success. Not only is surgery expensive and daunting for many people, the aftermath and healing process can be very painful.
Further, often a surgeon will write the patient a prescription for an opioid painkiller that should last the patient just long enough for the healing process. These painkillers are risky, however, because of how addictive opioids tend to be. To avoid surgery, people are starting to choose braces, especially semi-flexible, dynamic, step-down braces, to help with healing instead of surgery. Here at Doctor in the House we develop customized braces designed to help your body to heal itself.
We believe in the “surgery as a last resort” approach. If you want to try to avoid surgery and the dangers of addictive painkillers, try getting a customized brace for your injury. Please feel free to send us a message if you have any questions about orthopedic braces or any of our products.
As a surgeon who deeply cares about patient well-being, I firmly believe in the potential of therapies such as chiropractic treatment. By embracing a holistic approach to pain and the care of our bodies, we can reduce reliance on addictive medications as well as invasive medical treatments, and provide patients with safe, effective, and much safer options. It is crucial for healthcare professionals to work together and explore these alternatives to ensure the best possible care for those in need, while minimizing the risks associated with invasive medical care as well as opioid use.
