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

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 felt 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.
