Will I receive medication from the chiropractor for my pain?

There are many instances, however, when your chiropractor may recommend medications on at least a temporary basis for pain control until progress can be made through chiropractic treatment. 

I'm not a big fan of pills and shots, but they can be tremendously helpful, especially in the acute phase. 

I often see people who are in enough pain that they have such extreme spasms and limited range of motion that adjustments are just not immediately effective. 

In those cases, we can refer either to your primary care doctor or an orthpedist for evaluation for pharmaceuticals. 

The ultimate goal is for you to be pain free as quickly as possible in the least invasive method possible. If that route includes meds, so be it!
