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

Instead of opioids, Brooks chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

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

Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

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.
