When you’re in pain, you want relief, and you want it now! Our natural tendency is to run to the medicine cabinet to grab that bottle of pain reliever, BUT, here’s the thing. Those pain pills…they only mask the pain, rather than treat the pain.
While NSAID pain relievers are a great short-term option for pain relief, they should not be used as a long-term solution. At Driven Fit + SWS, the premier South Tampa chiropractor, we believe that chiropractic care is a key component to your overall wellness. It is safe, noninvasive, and not only treats the pain but identifies the root cause of the pain.
“But, at what point do I need a chiropractor?”
Listening to Your Body
Physical symptoms are red flags that shouldn’t be ignored or covered up with pain pills! In fact, a symptom is the body’s natural way of letting you know that an illness or condition is developing.
Whether the symptom is nagging or painful, intermittent or chronic, it is a tell-tale sign that should not be ignored and should be treated immediately.
Common symptoms include:
- Cold or flu symptoms
If you experience any of the symptoms listed above (even if they’re minor!), chiropractic care may be the answer! Call/ text Driven Fit + SWS at (813) 440-3016 to see Dr. Sponaugle and learn how our chiropractic services can help!
Finding the Root Cause of Pain
To treat a physical symptom, you must first identify the root cause. After all, the longer you mask the problem, the worse the long-term effects of a serious underlying condition can become. This is where chiropractic care is extremely beneficial and the first step to a long-term solution for relieving symptoms caused by:
During a Tampa chiropractic exam at Driven Fit + SWS, you will be asked about the length and type of symptoms that persist. Based on that information, our local chiropractors will get to work identifying the source of the issue, correcting it, and then preventing future physical symptoms from occurring.
Chiropractic Care & Prevention
While chiropractic care will identify and correct a health issue, it is also used to prevent health conditions from arising. Seeing a chiropractor regularly will allow for early detection of any hiccups in your body’s function.
At Driven Fit + SWS, Dr. Sarah will document your range of motion, energy level, and other health considerations. Should a red flag occur during regular chiropractic care sessions, she will be able to detect them on the spot and work with you to create the best treatment plan for you!
