May 2019 Healthy News: West Palm Beach Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, West Palm Beach chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

West Palm Beach chronic pain is extensive. West Palm Beach opioid use is epidemic. What is an effective option? Chiropractic with Chiropractic Care. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less liable to get a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to researchers that their pain would be more without such chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Care highly regard their chiropractic care! West Palm Beach chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

Chiropractic Care offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

West Palm Beach athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt improved 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 went on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in two football seasons during which they had spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A new report said that a single pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling 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 boosts your edge. Let’s talk at your next West Palm Beach chiropractic appointment.
