Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Baton Rouge chronic pain is
rampant. Baton Rouge opioid use is epidemic.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. 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 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 issue were 49% less
apt to obtain a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation highly regard their chiropractic care! Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Baton Rouge athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced added 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 persisted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt improved
performances in two football seasons during which they had
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 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’s talk
at your next Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment.
