The Doctors at Goldson are urging Mothers to #JustSayNoToDrugs

Moms, have you noticed the conversations happening all-across the country concerning doctors and prescription drugs? Well, mothers in my network are beginning to realize the long-term dangers of taking both prescribed and over-the-counter drugs. As the primary caretakers of most homes, mothers are becoming more conscious of the advantages of using natural remedies to keep their households healthy. The good news is Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center offers treatment that includes physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture and counseling options. If you consider the treatment options above, you will find it easier to join our campaign to #JustSayNoToDrugs.

Let’s explore the benefits of physical therapy. When I think of physical therapy, I am reminded of my dog, Charlie. Every morning when Charlie wakes up, he does not just roll out of bed like we do, but rather, he stretches out of his doggy bed. His stretch is a series of movements where he elongates his body from head to paw, dropping and arching his body in the middle, rotating his neck and wiggling his paw-toes. His dedication to self-medicating through stretching and physical therapy is not only admirable but a teachable moment.

Physical therapy is a form of natural medicine administered by licensed physical therapists. In fact, PT is defined as a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that uses mechanical force and movements, to remediate impairments and promote mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention. This means moms everywhere should re-evaluate their choice to give their families a pill when they can encourage physical activity to treat pain or discomfort. This option provides healing without leaving dangerous toxins in the body like medications can.

Personally, I urge you to #JustSayNoToDrugs. Consult with a licensed physical therapist on how you can use exercise and body movement to treat sickness, decrease pain and prevent most diseases. Always make sure to consult with your doctor before discontinuing any prescribed medication.
