Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Carrolltown chronic pain is
rampant. Carrolltown opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs rose, risks rose.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 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 obtain a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different 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 higher without such
chiropractic care. Further, they are willing to pay for care
to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Carrolltown chiropractic patients at
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation value their chiropractic care! Carrolltown

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Carrolltown athletes – recreational and professional
– want that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced increased muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in two football seasons during which they received
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A new report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of controlling the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and marginally 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 Carrolltown chiropractic appointment.
