Since chiropractic maintains a holistic approach to health and wellness, it is a non-surgical practice for pain relief and treatment. It is recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neck and back pain, joint pain of the limbs, headaches and migraines, and other neuromusculoskeletal problems.
There are very few risks involved with chiropractic care for pain relief. Most patients will feel immediate relief following their treatment, but some patients may experience mild soreness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Any minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulations and adjustments will usually fade within 24 hours.
Research shows that chiropractic care:
- Should be tried for at least 4 to 6 weeks before any advanced imaging (MRI, CT, etc.) or testing, especially in acute radiculopathy
- Compared with surgical care for spinal stenosis offered nearly equal relief (50% non-surgical vs 53% surgical) in reported improvement at 8-10 years after care
- Compared with surgery for spinal stenosis and disc herniation and leg pain: surgery gives short-term relief of symptoms that decline over the long-term
