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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Paramus chronic pain is rampant. Paramus opioid use is widespread. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs rose, risks rose. 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 fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less apt to receive 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 expressed to researchers that their pain would be higher without such chiropractic care. Further, 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) Paramus chiropractic patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center highly regard their chiropractic care! Paramus 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 absent!

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Paramus athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation may be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt added muscle strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors went on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in 2 football seasons during which they received pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for 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 talk at your next Paramus chiropractic appointment.
