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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Murfreesboro chronic pain is extensive. Murfreesboro opioid use is epidemic. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with Most Chiropractic Clinic. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs increased, risks soared. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less apt 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 told researchers that their pain would be greater 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) Murfreesboro chiropractic patients at Most Chiropractic Clinic appreciate their chiropractic care! Murfreesboro 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 allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was gone!

Most Chiropractic Clinic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Murfreesboro CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Murfreesboro athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt increased muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The improved force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in two football seasons during which they received 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 regulating the body's unconscious actions) dominance and slightly lessened 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 Murfreesboro chiropractic appointment.
