Many people believe that pain medication is completely safe and that they don’t need to worry about any potential side effects. The drug industry has done a great job in advertising these products using images of happy smiling people getting on with their days and enjoying life to its fullest; problem solved. The public pairs over-the-counter pain killers with far stronger prescription drugs as “safe and easy”. As you will be able to read in this informative article from McGill.ca, clearly that “safe and easy” idea is misplaced.
The natural therapies offered at the Toronto Wellness Centre (chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture, and naturopathy) have a great and safe track record in helping with many different pains which patients are commonly prescribed these deadly drugs for. Don’t become a statistic: skip the pain medicine and find help.
