Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Groton chronic pain is
rampant. Groton opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Shoreline Medical Services/ 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
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office highly regard their chiropractic care! Groton

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.
