Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Lynchburg chronic pain is
rampant. Lynchburg opioid use is epidemic.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
Palmer Chiropractic Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased.
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, use of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
apt to receive 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 maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Lynchburg chiropractic patients at
Palmer Chiropractic Center appreciate their chiropractic care! Lynchburg

to visit him for a year as his pain was absent!
Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Lynchburg athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation could be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt added 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced better
performances in two football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (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 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’s talk
at your next Lynchburg chiropractic appointment.
