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

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

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 visited 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 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 allowed a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was gone!

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

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.
