Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Pflugerville chronic pain is
extensive. Pflugerville opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Pflugerville Wellness Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs rose, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
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 on-going chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be greater 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) Pflugerville chiropractic patients at
Pflugerville Wellness Center highly regard their chiropractic care! Pflugerville

Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Pflugerville athletes – recreational and professional
– want that edge when they do their sport.
Spinal manipulation might be that edge! 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 persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went
on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in 2 football seasons during which they obtained
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A new report shared 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 talk
at your next Pflugerville chiropractic appointment.
