Pain Management and Chiropractic: A Drug-Free Alternative
In the face of the staggering U.S. opioid epidemic, I am joining with chiropractors around the country during the October celebration of National Chiropractic Health Month. Our goal is to raise the awareness of drug-free alternatives such as pain management and chiropractic.
Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that as many as one in four patients who receive prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain in primary care settings struggle with addiction. A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation revealed that nearly 50 percent of Americans say they personally have known someone who is addicted to prescription painkillers.
Pain Management and Chiropractic
Chiropractic is an important, effective and natural first line of defense against pain. In some cases, chiropractic care may eliminate the need for over-the-counter and prescription painkillers. It’s vital that patients who are in pain are made aware that they have drug-free pain management options.
Many respected health care organizations now recommend drug-free pain management treatment. The CDC’s new Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain encourages medical doctors to utilize conservative care and to consider non-addictive alternative options.
Using treatments such as spinal manipulation, chiropractic takes a drug-free approach to treating conditions such as back pain, neck pain, leg pain, and sciatica. Research has found spinal manipulation to be effective and safe. Pain management and chiropractic care have proven to be a perfect, drug-free option.
Depending upon your particular condition and needs, chiropractic treatment can be combined with medical massage and acupuncture for a drug-free pain management program. If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic or acute pain, please give us a call and make an appointment. You will be glad you did.
New patient special for the month of October… At Thorburn Chiropractic, we are celebrating National Chiropractic Health Month with a terrific special. New patients without chiropractic coverage get their first visit for $29 cash, a $177 value! (Those with health insurance pay their usual co-pay as required by their health insurance.) The first visit includes a consultation, exam, and adjustment. Please share this with your family and friends.
