Moses Chiropractic 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 even start with them. The society and the medical community are (coming) together on this. Recent research describes the benefit chiropractic care has in decreasing the prescribing, need, and use of opioids. Moses Chiropractic is happy to satisfy the additional role of pain management for West Palm Beach back pain sufferers!


Moses Chiropractic knows the widespread opioid use in low back pain management. Researchers do, too. They reviewed low back pain patients cared for by chiropractors to find out if said chiropractic patients were less likely to use or more likely to use lower doses of opioids for their pain. Such an impact could lead to a decreased risk of adverse effects. They found that chiropractic patients as opposed to non-chiropractic patients were 55% less prone to fill an opioid prescription, a considerably lower number. (1) There are many West Palm Beach chiropractic patients who would like to not fill their opioid prescriptions. Moses Chiropractic is here to help them control their back pain with the addition of West Palm Beach chiropractic care.


Moses Chiropractic often cooperates with medical colleagues to help our West Palm Beach back pain patients manage their pain. Research supports such an effort! The study of a family medicine practice that integrated chiropractic services reported fluctuations in opioid prescription rates. The monthly rate of opioid prescription writing dropped significantly by 22%. The rate of prescription writing for schedule II opioids decreased significantly by 32% too. The likelihood of writing a schedule II opioid prescription fell by 27%, too, when chiropractic services were added. 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 proposed that including chiropractic was beneficial in opioid prescribing and implementation of a non-pharmaceutical option for pain management. (2) Working together, West Palm Beach healthcare providers like your chiropractor and your medical team want what’s best for your health and back pain relief. We’ll work together to accomplish that goal.
