Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Watertown chronic pain is
extensive. Watertown opioid use is epidemic.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Watertown Wellness Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
liable to get a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to
researchers that their pain would be greater without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, 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) Watertown chiropractic patients at
Watertown Wellness Center highly regard their chiropractic care! Watertown

Watertown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Watertown athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their activity.
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 improved force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced increased
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 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 diminished 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 Watertown chiropractic appointment.
