Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
McHenry chronic pain is
rampant. McHenry opioid use is widespread.
What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks rose.
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 fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
likely to obtain a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) McHenry chiropractic patients at
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic highly regard their chiropractic care! McHenry

McHenry CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
McHenry athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation may be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced 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 lasted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase continued 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 new report shared that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of controlling 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’s chat
at your next McHenry chiropractic appointment.
