May 2019 Healthy News: Minster Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

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

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 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 utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was absent!

Minster Chiropractic Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

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.
