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

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.
