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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Pensacola chronic pain is extensive. Pensacola opioid use is epidemic. What’s a solution? Chiropractic with Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs rose, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, usage of chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less liable to receive a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using routine chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain told researchers that their pain would be more 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) Pensacola chiropractic patients at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center value their chiropractic care! Pensacola chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with 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 using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management permitted a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was absent!

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Pensacola CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Pensacola athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation may 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 lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they had spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A new 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 slightly lessened performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let’s talk at your next Pensacola chiropractic appointment.
