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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Manahawkin chronic pain is rampant. Manahawkin opioid use is epidemic. What is an effective option? Chiropractic with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs increased, risks increased. 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 ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less liable to receive 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 expressed to researchers that their pain would be more 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) Manahawkin chiropractic patients at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center value their chiropractic care! Manahawkin 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 using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management permitted a patient to “forget” to come see him for a year as his pain was absent!

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

Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Manahawkin athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their sport. 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 added force of the maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors went on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase persisted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced better performances in 2 football seasons during which they had pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (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 responsible for controlling the body's unconscious actions) dominance and marginally 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 Manahawkin chiropractic appointment.
