Why Don’t Chiropractors Prescribe Drugs?

Chiropractors shy away from drugs because they believe in a holistic approach to your health. In today’s world of alternative medicine, chiropractors are the smart choice for staying healthy and free of pain. People concerned about the side effects of chemicals and drugs know that chiropractors are the best choice. Information can be found here.


Daniel David Palmer, who founded chiropractic in the late 1800s, taught his students that all pain comes from the nervous system. When the spine was out of alignment, the nerves would be irritated and therefore cause pain. In modern medicine, we know that drugs for pain are either dull or stop the nerve impulses to the brain, so Palmer was right on the mark. It is why chiropractors don’t need to prescribe drugs. Once the nerves are in proper alignment with the spine, the pain subsides. See here for information about Exploding the Myths About Chiropractors.

Chiropractors usually don’t give drugs because they believe that the human body’s natural state is healthy. They believe in the “innate intelligence” of the body – that the body knows what to do to keep itself in balance. When the body is in a state of balance between the nervous system, the circulatory system, the skeletal system, the digestive system, and on and on, then the pain subsides.
