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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Nashua chronic pain is extensive. Nashua opioid use is epidemic. What’s a solution? Chiropractic with Moriarty Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs increased, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, use of chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less liable to obtain a prescription for an opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1) Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage their chronic low-back and neck pain told researchers that their pain would be higher without such chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Nashua chiropractic patients at Moriarty Chiropractic value their chiropractic care! Nashua 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 permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was absent!

Moriarty Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Nashua CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Nashua athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation may be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they had pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A recent report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for 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 boosts your edge. Let us chat at your next Nashua chiropractic appointment.
