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.
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.
