Would you take pain medication for crooked teeth?  The obvious answer is no. Pain medication does nothing to address the root cause of the crooked teeth.  Only a dentist can use the necessary tools such as braces to correct crooked teeth.  The same concept applies to chiropractic care.  Spinal misalignments cannot be corrected with pain medication in any form.  Pills or shots are not going to get to the heart of the issue the way that chiropractic care from a Charlotte chiropractor will.  Yet so many times, many people turn to medication for pain or ailments that are actually coming from their spine.  Instead of turning to pills or any other form of medication for short-term and non-permanent relief, consider regular chiropractic care with Dr. Grant Lisetor of Greater Life Chiropractic. Just as a dentist has the tools to correct teeth, Dr. Grant has the knowledge and tools to correct spinal misalignments to alleviate pain, ailments, and other health concerns related to your spinal health.

Chiropractic Care Gets to the Source of Pain

Pain is usually the main thing that alerts people that something is amiss within the body.  Pain is a way the body tells us that there is a problem that needs to be addressed.  Spinal misalignments that are not dealt with can lead to pain as they can cause pressure or tension on the nerves and even lead to inflammation within the body.  If you are experiencing pain, chances are that there are spinal misalignments that are at the root of your discomfort.  Gentle adjustments from Dr. Lisetor will correct spinal misalignments to restore spinal health, then allowing the body to function optimally.  Chiropractic care that addresses the source of pain is a long-term solution to eliminating pain and increasing overall health and wellness.

Medication or Chiropractic Care?

When pain hits, all we can think about is finding relief.  In this moment, we will often turn to medications.  But the relief is only short-lived as pain and symptoms can return once medications wear off.  Medication only treats the symptom, not the underlying problem.  Just like it doesn’t make sense to take pain medication for crooked teeth, it doesn’t make sense to take pain medication to improve the overall function and health of the body.  To do that, you need to first look at the spine.  Spinal misalignments disrupt nerve communication between the brain and the rest of the body which can lead to a slew of health problems.  Through regular chiropractic visits to a Charlotte chiropractor, nerve communication can be restored and the central nervous system will function optimally to not only treat the symptoms, but also the underlying issues, spinal misalignments. This will bring about true correction and not just temporary relief.

Chiropractic Care Improve Quality of Life

Neurologically-based chiropractic care is the best solution for restoring proper structure to the spine and optimal function to the central nervous system.  When the body can function as it should without nerve interference caused by spinal misalignments, you can experience a whole new level of health.  Chiropractic care will improve your quality of life so that you can live your best life each and every day.
