  3. Are pain killers safe to use for chronic pain conditions?

    Chronic pain is a very serious condition, yet until recently there was no satisfactory treatment. Although doctors prescribe pain killers to help relieve chronic pain conditions, they do not always work; even when they do work, they do not solve the problem.

    Pain killers are not a treatment, they only mask the pain which can cause further damage. The long-term use of pain killers are associated with risks, and may cause addiction.

  5. What about neck or back surgery?

    Surgical procedures may relieve the pain; however, they change the anatomy of the back, are painful, may have complications and a significant rate of failure. Many patients feel much worse after surgery than before and most sugical doctors will tell you that relief may last for about 3-4 years, at which point another surgery may be needed.

    Surgery is a very invasive procedure and it's best to leave it as only a last resort. At Busch Chiropractic, we have helped thousands of patients avoid surgery and relieve their back pain and neck pain conditions. The majority of our patients remain pain-free and are able to live active lifestyles.
