Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Southern New Hampshire chronic pain is extensive. Southern New Hampshire opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with New Hampshire Spine and Sport. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs rose, 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 problem were 49% less apt to get a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to researchers that their pain would be more without such chiropractic care. Additionally, 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) Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients at New Hampshire Spine and Sport highly regard their chiropractic care! Southern New Hampshire 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 utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was gone!

New Hampshire Spine and Sport offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Southern New Hampshire CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Southern New Hampshire athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. 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 increased force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors lasted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in two football seasons during which they had spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A recent report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling 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 enhances your edge. Let’s talk at your next Southern New Hampshire chiropractic appointment.
