Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Vancouver chronic pain is
extensive. Vancouver opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
Vancouver Spine Care Centre. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks rose.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, use of
chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less
liable to take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced to
researchers that their pain would be greater 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) Vancouver chiropractic patients at
Vancouver Spine Care Centre value their chiropractic care! Vancouver

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Vancouver athletes – recreational and professional
– want that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation could be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt increased 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 persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase went
on for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced improved
performances in two football seasons during which they received
pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A recent report shared that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and slightly diminished performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let’s chat
at your next Vancouver chiropractic appointment.
