Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Auburn chronic pain is
extensive. Auburn opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks rose.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
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 routine chiropractic care to manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Auburn chiropractic patients at
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. highly regard their chiropractic care! Auburn

Auburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Auburn athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their sport.
Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt 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 - experienced increased
performances in two football seasons during which they received
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report shared 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 boosts your edge. Let us chat
at your next Auburn chiropractic appointment.
