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

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.
