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

Instead of opioids, Tonawanda chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Tonawanda chronic pain is extensive. Tonawanda opioid use is widespread. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer 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 utilization 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 receive a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage 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 keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Tonawanda chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation value their chiropractic care! Tonawanda chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was absent!

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Tonawanda athletes – recreational and professional – want that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt 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 continued for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt better performances in 2 football seasons during which they obtained pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new report said that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for regulating the body's unconscious actions) dominance and slightly lessened performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let’s chat at your next Tonawanda chiropractic appointment.
