As we age as a population, more and more people are beginning to turn to complementary medicine to alleviate or control many health conditions especially musculo skeletal conditions such as Migraines, Headaches, TMJ/TMD/Jaw, Neck Pain, Arm weakness/numbness, Back pain, sciatica, hip pain and many other common conditions. Well, what is complementary medicine? It is scientifically recognized treatments including chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, homeopathy, and many other treatments which can be utilized in conjunction with modern medicine treatments for a better outcome. For example, If a person had a significant whiplash neck injury, they may go to the ER for immediate testing, medications for pain/inflammations and maybe later receive and injection to calm down the inflammation with a follow visit to a chiropractor for a gentle re alignment of the spine with massage therapy to follow several weeks later.
More and more primary care physicians are recognizing the benefits of blending modern medicine with complementary medicines to improve patient care. All health care providers should be focused on helping patients get as well as possible as quick as possible to reduce the need for addictive pain medications. Nationwide, pain medications are being recognized as addictive, harmful and dangerous as these addiction pain medications can often lead to abuse of more harmful recreational drugs which often destroy people's health, families and communities. That is why it is so imperative that modern medicine and Complementary medicine work together to break these pain patterns in people suffering with musculo skeletal conditions before addictive medications become abused.
