Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Eugene chronic pain is
rampant. Eugene opioid use is epidemic.
What is a solution? Chiropractic with
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks rose.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of
chiropractic utilization 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
likely to receive a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different 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 higher without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, 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) Eugene chiropractic patients at
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic appreciate their chiropractic care! Eugene

with Dr. Vincent Pankonin on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr.

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