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

Instead of opioids, San Jose chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

San Jose chronic pain is extensive. San Jose opioid use is epidemic. What is a solution? Chiropractic with Chiropractic Solutions. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs soared, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a research analysis 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 problem were 49% less apt to take a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to researchers that their pain would be higher without such chiropractic care. Further, 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) San Jose chiropractic patients at Chiropractic Solutions appreciate their chiropractic care! San Jose 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 utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management allowed a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was gone!

Chiropractic Solutions offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

San Jose CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

San Jose athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced increased 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 lasted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they had spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A new report said that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in charge of controlling 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 enhances your edge. Let us talk at your next San Jose chiropractic appointment.
