Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Vancouver chronic pain is
extensive. Vancouver opioid use is epidemic.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
Vancouver Disc Centers. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs soared, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less
liable to get a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other 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 more 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) Vancouver chiropractic patients at
Vancouver Disc Centers appreciate their chiropractic care! Vancouver

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Vancouver athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their sport.
Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced improved 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 not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt increased
performances in 2 football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report shared that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about 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 us chat
at your next Vancouver chiropractic appointment.
