Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Brooks chronic pain is
extensive. Brooks opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
Soft Health and Healing Clinic. 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 analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
likely to take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to
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 varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Brooks chiropractic patients at
Soft Health and Healing Clinic appreciate their chiropractic care! Brooks

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Brooks athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their sport.
Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt added muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced increased
performances in 2 football seasons during which they obtained
pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (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 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 boosts your edge. Let us chat
at your next Brooks chiropractic appointment.
