Finding an effective method of dealing with pain can be challenging, which is why many seek relief in any way possible. Unfortunately, in many cases, this means relying on opioids, which can become addictive and lead to more significant issues. Luckily, chiropractic care can be a healthier and more effective solution for dealing with chronic pain and problems stemming from previous injuries. In fact, according to multiple studies, those who use chiropractic care are significantly less likely to use opioids.

At Academy Injury & Health Center, we seek the best solutions for pain management regardless of your condition. We handle a variety of patients, from teen sports stars rehabbing an injury to expectant mothers seeking relief from the aches and pains of pregnancy. We have found that the best way to do this is through natural treatments, and without the use of potentially addictive substances such as opioids.

Treating Lower Back Pain

One of the leading causes of opioid dependence stems from seeking treatment for lower back pain. Meanwhile, a visit to your local chiropractor to treat any underlying issues that may be causing the pain will result in actual results rather than just managing the pain and building up the addiction and dependence that taking opioid medication results in.

Through various treatments conducted by our highly-trained staff, Academy Injury & Health Center can diagnose the cause of your pain. From there, we work with you on a schedule and routine that can not only get rid of the lower back pain itself but alleviate the source of it. You may find that this pain comes from different parts of your body and various issues you may not have been aware of — and we can offer the long-lasting relief that opioids cannot.

As the Greater Philadelphia Area — as well as the nation as a whole — continues to find a solution to combat the opioid crisis, we offer services that are a healthier and more productive alternative to highly-addictive medications. If you are experiencing lower back pain, joint pains, or other chronic conditions, we encourage you to first turn to Dr. Francis McCafferty and the team at Academy Injury & Health Center.
