Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Colorado Springs chronic pain is
extensive. Colorado Springs opioid use is epidemic.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs soared, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem 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 expressed to
researchers that their pain would be higher without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, 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) Colorado Springs chiropractic patients at

Colorado Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Colorado Springs athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt added 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 - felt increased
performances in two football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report shared 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 boosts your edge. Let’s talk
at your next Colorado Springs chiropractic appointment.
