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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Tarrytown chronic pain is rampant. Tarrytown opioid use is widespread. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with Tarrytown Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution for chronic pain…costs rose, risks soared. Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. 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 visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less apt to receive a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different 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 higher without such chiropractic care. Further, 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) Tarrytown chiropractic patients at Tarrytown Chiropractic appreciate their chiropractic care! Tarrytown 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!

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

Tarrytown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Tarrytown athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation may be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced added 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 continued for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced improved performances in two football seasons during which they received spinal manipulation treatments before games. (4) A recent report shared that a single pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in charge of regulating the body's unconscious actions) dominance and marginally lessened performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let us chat at your next Tarrytown chiropractic appointment.
