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

Instead of opioids, Colorado Springs chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

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 The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR value their chiropractic care! Colorado Springs chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with 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!

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

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.
