May 2019 Healthy News: West Palm Beach Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, West Palm Beach chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

West Palm Beach chronic pain is extensive. West Palm Beach opioid use is epidemic. What is a solution? Chiropractic with Moses Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs rose, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited 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 routine chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to researchers that their pain would be more without such chiropractic care. Further, they are willing to pay for care to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients at Moses Chiropractic appreciate their chiropractic care! West Palm Beach chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

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

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

West Palm Beach athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced increased muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in two football seasons during which they obtained pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (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 marginally lessened 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic appointment.
