Adverse Drug Events

A recent study found “that 6.5% of all adult non-obstetrical patients admitted to two teaching hospitals suffered an adverse drug event”; and that “most errors occurred in the physician ordering the prescription”. Even more interesting are what caused the errors by the physicians:

  • Lack of knowledge about the drug 36%
  • Lack of information on the patient 24%
  • Rules violation 19%
  • Slips and memory lapses 11%
  • Inadequate monitoring 8%
  • Other 2%

With so many medications being prescribed in error and often without justification, it behooves us all to question the need and effects of the drugs being given for our “health”.

The advantage of Chiropractic care is that it adds nothing to your body, nor does it take anything away. Regular Chiropractic care will assist your body in functioning at a much higher level-thereby eliminating the need for many medications that are being prescribed on a daily basis.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
