The Downside of Managing Pain with Pills

Dr. Levine explains what pain really means

What Back Pain Really Means

Medication, there's a time and a place for it. There are people that are managing their diabetes. They're managing certain health conditions with medication, and that's fine. Their body has gotten to a point where they need that assistance. But if we're popping pills for pain and we're not really solving the problem, we're treating, potentially, a mechanical problem with chemistry. You're not going to move a bone off a nerve with chemistry. If my finger gets caught in the door, I can take all kinds of drugs to feel better. But doesn't someone have to open that door to free the finger up? It's the same thing in the human body. We are masking the symptoms and not treating the problem. 

Research has shown that a lot of painkillers are actually prolonging that recovery process. That's not chiropractic research; that's medical research. On the same token, that when you feel better artificially, you tend to do more. When the drug wears off, isn't the problem worse? Potentially yes.
