Most Chiropractic Clinic Offers Chiropractic Care Which May Reduce the Need of Opioids

Opioid epidemic. The news talks about it. An efficient way to avoid relying on opioids is to not have to start with them. The public and the medical community are (coming) together on this. New research presents the benefit chiropractic care has in reducing the prescribing, need, and use of opioids. Most Chiropractic Clinic is glad to fill the additional role of pain management for Murfreesboro back pain sufferers!


Most Chiropractic Clinic understands the frequent opioid use in low back pain management. Researchers do, also. They analyzed low back pain patients cared for by chiropractors to determine if said chiropractic patients were less prone to use or more likely to use lower doses of opioids for their pain. Such an influence could lead to a decreased risk of adverse effects. They saw that chiropractic patients as opposed to non-chiropractic patients were 55% less likely to fill an opioid prescription, a significantly lower number. (1) There are many Murfreesboro chiropractic patients who would like to not fill their opioid prescriptions. Most Chiropractic Clinic is here to help them manage their back pain with the addition of Murfreesboro chiropractic care.


Most Chiropractic Clinic often communicates with medical colleagues to help our Murfreesboro back pain patients manage their pain. Research supports such an endeavor! The study of a family medicine practice that incorporated chiropractic services found changes in opioid prescription rates. The monthly rate of opioid prescription writing dropped significantly by 22%. The rate of prescription writing for schedule II opioids dropped significantly by 32% too. The likelihood of writing a schedule II opioid prescription fell by 27%, too, when chiropractic services were included. Medical providers prescribed daily doses of opioids that were 30% less than before chiropractic was added. Including chiropractic decreased the dosage of opioids, the number of opioid prescriptions, and the types of opioids prescribed. The authors suggested that adding chiropractic was beneficial in opioid prescribing and implementation of a non-pharmaceutical option for pain management.

We’ll work together to accomplish that goal.
