In the 21st Century, there is an actual diagnosis for everything. It is OK to have them and pursue traditional medical treatment. The question is: How is your Quality of Life? Are you working better? Do you function better? Do you feel better? Do you feel older than your age? Did you have surgery, and are you still in pain? Did the surgery not fix the problem or create a new problem? A human being is over-diagnosed and over-treated if their vitality goes down.
Surgery did not work if you are still on any medication, are in pain, or now have a new problem. If your verve: your enthusiasm for life continues to decline, then the diagnosis made you no better. If you are now on multiple medications, then the cause was not corrected.
Chiropractic is not a cure-all. There is no magic bullet. But let me tell you something. Having the right natural health doctor on your team can only help. Getting movement back in your spine, releasing the pathways from the brain, through the nerves, to your body to heal itself, can only help. Getting educated on how your body works – can only help. With education and proper adjustments, you can go from being Over-Diagnosed to being Properly Diagnosed or ‘Un-Diagnosed.’

It also states. ‘Don’t be an accidental drug dealer.’ Prescriptions do come from medical doctors. If you are concerned about why you have the pain, the cause of the pain, and ways to get out of the pain, you Must look further than the use of drugs to numb the pain. Getting out of pain is not at all easy or convenient, but it is ‘cheaper’ than going the medical route to the end of your time. The problem with medication and pain reduction from it is: there is no end in sight. The treatment plan for most medications is every day, for the rest of your life, and/or until you are given more medication…for the rest of your life. It does not produce movement in the body or leads to an increased quality of life. It gets you by.

We are also not suggesting that you forgo Google research. Just understand: “It is not what you look at; it is what you see” Thoreau. There is a term called a differential diagnosis. It means that a properly educated doctor of whatever specialty can take your history, do an extensive exam, and ask you the right questions to come to a logical medical/natural conclusion. There will always be a diagnosis if one is searched for. But What is the Real Cause?!
