Chiropractors Do Not Prescribe Medicine or Drugs

Chiropractor Chapel Hill, NC

As the title to this blog post attests, most Doctors of Chiropractic do not prescribe or even recommend drugs or medicines to their patients. Licensed in holistic medicine, chiropractors share a healing paradigm with other non-drug practitioners, including acupuncturists and naturopaths. Whereas medical doctors and osteopaths are licensed to prescribe drugs and medication to their patients, most US chiropractors, naturopaths, and acupuncturists do not have this privilege. For this and other reasons, chiropractors do not generally recommend drugs and medicines to heal patients. At the chiropractic and acupuncture offices of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, she does not prescribe chemical products and advises patients to review all medication and drug questions with their medical providers.

At Acupractic Natural Healing Center, Dr. Oskardmay provides hands-on diagnostics, followed by chiropractic adjustments, massage, and acupuncture to restore body function and qi flow. Doctors of Chiropractic, Licensed Acupuncturists, and Naturopaths work on the premise that the body knows full well how to heal itself in most instances. The best mode of treatment is always first to help the patient access their healing potential. A licensed chiropractic physician, Dr. Oskardmay, understands the role of the brain and nervous system in healthful living. She provides chiropractic adjustment to restore vertebral integrity and support proper nerve impulse conduction. Not dissimilarly, as a licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Okardmay also employs acupuncture to enhance qi flow, reduce meridian stagnation and uniquely heal each patient. She enjoys helping patients choose foods and exercises to improve their healing response, as well.

Patients suffering from back pain and other musculoskeletal aches and pains have access to a wide array of over-the-counter pain relievers- NSAIDs and analgesics. While these provide temporary relief to many, medical errors and misuse of drugs cost countless lives in the US. Many people reach for these products because they want quick results as promised by numerous television commercials for these and other medicines. Clinal results are not a given, and not everyone receives the promised glory of a pain-free life.

Missing also is the understanding of the side effects of these products. A close read of the tiny print on the sides of the bottles demonstrates the dangers within, which include: indigestion, liver damage, stomach ulcers, headaches, dizziness, allergic reactions, to name a few. These side effects are also mentioned at the end of television advertisements, albeit quickly and in blurring monotone, while magnetic images of happy people propel the viewer onward. Historically, chiropractors and other natural health proponents have not prescribed drugs and medicines mainly due to the adverse side effects of drugs.

Drugs and medicines are chemical substances used to create change in the way our bodies work. When taken by swallowing, inhaling, or injecting, drugs enter the bloodstream and move to affect the brain and other body parts. In the brain, drugs and medications may intensify or dull the senses, change how alert or sleepy a person feels, and sometimes decrease the physical pain. At the chiropractic and acupuncture offices of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, she enjoys working with patients who appreciate the hands-on treatments she provides to heal the body naturally.
