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

Instead of opioids, Fort Wayne chiropractic is valuable for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Fort Wayne chronic pain is extensive. Fort Wayne opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Why? Opioids were welcomed 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 six studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less likely to obtain a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage 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 keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Fort Wayne chiropractic patients at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc appreciate their chiropractic care! Fort Wayne 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!

Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Fort Wayne athletes – recreational and professional – want that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt added 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt increased performances in two football seasons during which they received pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A new 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 regulating 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 enhances your edge. Let us talk at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic appointment.
