Nowadays, Dr. Andrew Thaw sees a particular patient on a regular basis for knee pain. She started seeing him after a tear in the cartilage of her knee had left her in pain for more than two years.
“I couldn’t walk my grandchildren outside. I couldn’t walk with my husband,” she said. She tried the usual choice of treatment first – pain medication. “I was living off pills and it
wasn’t getting any better.”
Regrettably (but fortunately), she tried chiropractic care as a last resort – but many other people choose it first. “More and more we’re getting people who don’t want to go through other forms of treatment,” says Dr. Thaw.
They want to try things that perhaps are less invasive first and they’ve heard good things about this type of treatment,” said Dr. Thaw.
Since Chiropractic care involves neither drugs nor surgery, it has far fewer side effects and does not require recovery times after treatment like surgery does.
“Chiropractic is incredibly safe, even compared to something as simple as an OTC (over-the-counter medication). I don’t mean there isn’t a place for either over-the-counter medication or prescriptions because, of course, there is,” said Dr. Thaw. “But it is not a long-term solution.”
Dr. Thaw’s patient found that she won’t have to have surgery for her knee because, now, after treatment with Dr. Thaw, she’s pain-free.
“I can walk with my grandchildren. I can walk with my husband. I don’t have to sleep with a pillow under my knees because of pain. I don’t have to take any more pain medicine. I have my life back,” she said.
