Finding Relief Without Opioids
There is no question that opioids are powerful pain killers.
The problem is… they are also highly addictive and don’t actually fix the cause of your pain.
If you’re struggling with chronic pain, you may be curious about what your best options are for care. How can you fix the cause of your pain, find lasting relief, and avoid these harmful medications? Keep reading.
Why it Matters:
You may be surprised to learn that people who saw a chiropractor for spine pain had half the risk of filling an opioid prescription when compared to those who didn’t undergo chiropractic care.
Yes, chiropractors don’t prescribe these dangerous medications in the first place.
But what we’ve seen is that, over time, people receiving chiropractic care were less likely to fill their opioid prescriptions.
In other words, that indicates that the care provided by chiropractors helped people find enough relief that they no longer sought medications to find relief!
Here’s what you need to remember…
Masking spine pain with medications can possibly increase your risk of further injury.
Movement-based care helps your body heal and can improve your likelihood of finding long-term relief.
Choosing chiropractic for spinal pain can reduce your risk of filling an opioid prescription by over 50%.
Opioids aren’t meant to treat chronic spinal pain.
They don’t help your body heal and become less effective at stopping pain the longer you take them.
Instead of putting yourself at risk of developing a dependency, it’s a smart decision to explore other treatment options.
