Oakville Chiropractor Dr. Steve Knighton at Glen Abbey Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is dedicated to patient health and education. A Chiropractor in Oakville who prides himself on patient education and the choices we all have about our own personal health. At the chiropractic clinic in Oakville we see all kinds of injuries from minor sprains and strains to long term chronic pain and diseases. Everyday the Oakville Chiropractic Clinic tends to countless patients on countless types of medication so often over prescribed by the medical community, the same medical community in Ontario that had its legislation put in place by the late Dalton Mcguinty.
Dr. Steve advises all his patients to ask why they are going on a drug and what are the side effects. The chiropractic clinic in Oakville also pleads with their patients to notify their medical Doctors about any other drugs they are taking to rule out negative interactions. Some drugs like thyroid medication or Insulin are a must to keep the patient alive. However many drugs prescribed by the Ontario Medical community can be combated with safer less invasive approaches such as manual therapy or simple education.
In America the number one misused over the counter drug is NSAID’s, just because it not prescription doesn’t mean its not dangerous. On the Dr. OZ show he stated that:
“Many people don’t realize the fact that many of the OTC products used to be prescription products, the only difference is that over the years sometimes the FDA will state that some over the counter products can be used instead as long as your using them correct way and that is why it is imperative to read the label so you are taking the medicine the right way.”
Every year 200,000 people are killed by overdosing or mixing OTC drugs in the USA.
