The Best Back Pain Treatment (Hint: It is NOT Offered by Your MD)

best back pain treatmentIf you have back pain and you’re going to a medical doctor, you’re going to the wrong person, and you will not get the best treatment for it. Like if you had chest pain and you went to your chiropractor, you would be going to the wrong person. However, if you came to me with chest pain, I would personally take you to the ER if needed.  If you go to your medical doctor with back pain, they will most likely not refer you to the doctor that has the best treatment with the most scientific evidence proving that it works best.

The Quickest, Cheapest, Most Effective Treatment

Research has proven repeatedly that chiropractors are the most qualified doctors when it comes to treating back pain. It’s also proven that chiropractic care helps people with back pain recover faster, cheaper, and with less complications than any other type of care. The research is now so overwhelming that if a doctor doesn’t at least recommend chiropractic care to a patient with back pain, their competency should be questioned.

There are a lot of problems that come with pain killing drugs. However, they’re prescribed for back pain all the time, despite study after study that they’re ineffective, dangerous and addicting. For twenty years I have successfully treated all kinds of very painful conditions without the use of any drugs. Why use these drugs with all of their side effects if it’s so unnecessary?

I could go on and on about the overuse, abuse, and incorrect use of all kinds of treatment for back pain. For now, I highly recommend the articles below. They explain much of what I have written in great detail with excellent scientific references. I would love to hear what you learn from reading these articles. I guarantee you will learn a ton.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
