Instead of opioids, Manchester chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Manchester chronic pain is extensive. Manchester opioid use is epidemic. What’s a solution? Chiropractic with Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less apt to get a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain told researchers that their pain would be more without such chiropractic care. Further, they are willing to pay for care to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Manchester chiropractic patients at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries appreciate their chiropractic care! Manchester chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with or without opioids.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Vincent Pankonin on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how chronic back pain treatment without opioids using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was absent!

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Manchester CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Manchester athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt added muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The improved force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in two football seasons during which they had pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for regulating the body's unconscious actions) dominance and slightly diminished performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let’s chat at your next Manchester chiropractic appointment.
