May 2019 Healthy News: New Roads Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, New Roads chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

New Roads chronic pain is rampant. New Roads opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with New Roads Chiropractic Center. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs soared, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research analysis of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less likely to obtain a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to researchers that their pain would be greater 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) New Roads chiropractic patients at New Roads Chiropractic Center appreciate their chiropractic care! New Roads 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 using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

New Roads Chiropractic Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

New Roads CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

New Roads athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation may be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced improved 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 at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt better performances in two football seasons during which they obtained 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 diminished performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let us talk at your next New Roads chiropractic appointment.
