Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Largo chronic pain is
rampant. Largo opioid use is widespread.
What is a solution? Chiropractic with
Hollstrom & Associates Inc. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks increased.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research analysis of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
apt to take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be more 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) Largo chiropractic patients at
Hollstrom & Associates Inc appreciate their chiropractic care! Largo

Largo CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Largo athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt increased muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The improved force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went
on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced improved
performances in two football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report said 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 slightly lessened 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 Largo chiropractic appointment.
