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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Easley chronic pain is rampant. Easley opioid use is epidemic. What’s a solution? Chiropractic with Young Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less liable to take a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using routine chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to researchers that their pain would be greater without such chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Easley chiropractic patients at Young Chiropractic appreciate their chiropractic care! Easley 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!

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

Easley CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Easley athletes – recreational and professional – want that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt added 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 persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they received spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A new report said 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 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 Easley chiropractic appointment.
