Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Minster chronic pain is
extensive. Minster opioid use is epidemic.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Minster Chiropractic Center. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less
apt to take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Minster chiropractic patients at
Minster Chiropractic Center appreciate their chiropractic care! Minster

Minster CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Minster athletes – recreational and professional
– want that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced increased muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The increased force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced improved
performances in 2 football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report shared that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of controlling the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and marginally lessened performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let us chat
at your next Minster chiropractic appointment.
