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

Instead of opioids, Severna Park chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Severna Park chronic pain is extensive. Severna Park opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with Back And Neck Care Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs increased, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six 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 issue were 49% less liable to get a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with 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 keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Severna Park chiropractic patients at Back And Neck Care Center appreciate their chiropractic care! Severna Park chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 visit him for a year as his pain was absent!

Back And Neck Care Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Severna Park athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced 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 went on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went on for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced increased performances in two football seasons during which they had pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new 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 enhances your edge. Let’s talk at your next Severna Park chiropractic appointment.
