May 2019 Healthy News: Plainville Chiropractic Benefits Chronic Pain (Without Opioids) & Athletes

Instead of opioids, Plainville chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Plainville chronic pain is extensive. Plainville opioid use is widespread. What is an effective option? Chiropractic with Layden Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six 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 problem were 49% less apt 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) Plainville chiropractic patients at Layden Chiropractic value their chiropractic care! Plainville chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 allowed a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

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

Plainville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Plainville athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced increased muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The increased force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors went on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt improved performances in two football seasons during which they received pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A recent report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for 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’s chat at your next Plainville chiropractic appointment.
