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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Groton chronic pain is rampant. Groton opioid use is widespread. What is an effective option? Chiropractic with Hutter Chiropractic Office. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 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 issue were 49% less apt to get 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 expressed to researchers that their pain would be more 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) Groton chiropractic patients at Hutter Chiropractic Office highly regard their chiropractic care! Groton chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with 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!

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

Groton CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Groton athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation could be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt improved 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 went on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they received 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 diminished performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let’s talk at your next Groton chiropractic appointment.
