Chiropractic care and addressing the opioid crisis
If you are worried about addiction resulting from the overuse or abuse of prescription opioids and crave a drug-free approach to long-term pain management, chiropractic care can be the answer you’re looking for.
Chiropractic care has long been seen as an alternative and far less invasive means to help people uncover the real reason they are in pain and eventually lead them to a healthier and more active lifestyle. But a new study has placed national attention on the benefits of chiropractic care, proving that people who regularly visit a chiropractor are less likely to use opioid painkillers.
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1,000 people are treated in the ER for misusing prescription opioids every day — causing what is now known as an opioid crisis. The study says people who use a chiropractor are 64% less likely to rely on opioids for pain management than those who don’t. The results of this study and others have led the Food and Drug Administration to propose changes to the way it educates healthcare providers on treating pain, including the use of chiropractic care.
