May 2019 Healthy News: Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Burlington and Hamilton chronic pain is rampant. Burlington and Hamilton opioid use is epidemic. What is an effective option? Chiropractic with Spinal Care Clinic. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 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 issue were 49% less apt to take a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain told researchers that their pain would be higher without such chiropractic care. Further, 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) Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients at Spinal Care Clinic appreciate their chiropractic care! Burlington and Hamilton 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 utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was absent!

Spinal Care Clinic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Burlington and Hamilton athletes – recreational and professional – want that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation could be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced added 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 went on for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in 2 football seasons during which they received pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new 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’s chat at your next Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic appointment.
