Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Baton Rouge chronic pain is
extensive. Baton Rouge opioid use is widespread.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
Spine & Sports Rehab Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research analysis 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 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 voiced to
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Further, they are willing to pay for care
to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at
Spine & Sports Rehab Center value their chiropractic care! Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Baton Rouge athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt improved 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 - experienced increased
performances in 2 football seasons during which they had
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 us chat
at your next Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment.
