Instead of opioids, Fernandina Beach chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

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 routine 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 chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with 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 utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

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.
