Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Fernandina Beach chronic pain is
rampant. Fernandina Beach opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks increased.
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, use of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less
likely to obtain a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going 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 ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients at
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic highly regard their chiropractic care! Fernandina Beach

Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Fernandina Beach athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation could be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced increased 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went
on for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt increased
performances in two football seasons during which they received
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of regulating the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and slightly diminished performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let us chat
at your next Fernandina Beach chiropractic appointment.
