It’s National Chiropractic Health Month at Fulk Chiropractic in Olathe! For the month of October, the American Chiropractic Association will share back injury prevention tips and strengthening exercises, along with information highlighting the importance of addressing back pain treatment proactively. The theme the chiropractic association has adopted for the month-long campaign is ‘Back to Basics.’ The month is intended to simplify the complexity of the chiropractic field into easy to understand principles. Educating patients about back pain, how chiropractic helps, and what differentiates chiropractic from other forms of medicine are among the topics to be discussed.
Back pain is among the most prevalent conditions worldwide. It can impact you in the form of a daily bother or a crippling ailment, and anything in between. Because of it’s prevalence, back pain is one of the most common conditions leading to doctors’ visits, and also one of the most common conditions that doctors treat with opioids. While you can’t always prevent back injury, the doctors at Fulk Chiropractic can help without the abusive prescription of opioids and get you back to feeling healthy as quickly as possible!
Where chiropractic treatment is the best option once injuries happen, taking preventative measures (combined with regular chiropractic care) is far more ideal. Knowing this, National Chiropractic Health Month will focus on back health ‘basics’ and the importance of maintaining strong spinal health throughout your lifetime. Daily stretches, changing your posture, sleeping better, and regular adjustments are just some of the ways people can keep themselves from injury. We’ll get into the specifics as the month goes on, but if you just can’t wait then feel free to check out our health tips page on our website!
The key component differentiating chiropractors from physicians is the that chiropractors focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the impact these disorders have on overall health. Where chiropractic treatment is most commonly associated with spinal injuries, the reality is that we do so much more. In addition to spinal treatment, our Overland Park chiropractors treat joint pain, inflammation, sciatica, headaches, pain during pregnancy, and more. Additionally, all of our doctors practice a hands-on & drug-free approach to chiropractic which includes comprehensive treatment, physical therapy, and individualized recovery plans.
