Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Sitka chronic pain is
extensive. Sitka opioid use is widespread.
What is a solution? Chiropractic with
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs soared, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
liable to take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different 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 higher 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) Sitka chiropractic patients at
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka appreciate their chiropractic care! Sitka

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