Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Richmond chronic pain is
rampant. Richmond opioid use is widespread.
What is a solution? Chiropractic with
Johnson Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less
liable to get a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed 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 varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Richmond chiropractic patients at
Johnson Chiropractic appreciate their chiropractic care! Richmond

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Richmond athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in two football seasons during which they received
pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A recent report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and marginally diminished performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let us chat
at your next Richmond chiropractic appointment.
