Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Williamson chronic pain is
extensive. Williamson opioid use is widespread.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
Apple Country Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
likely to get 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 higher 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) Williamson chiropractic patients at
Apple Country Chiropractic value their chiropractic care! Williamson

Williamson CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Williamson athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced improved 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 lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced improved
performances in two football seasons during which they obtained
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A new report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of 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 enhances your edge. Let’s chat
at your next Williamson chiropractic appointment.
