Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Ashburn chronic pain is
rampant. Ashburn opioid use is widespread.
What’s a solution? Chiropractic with
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research analysis 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 saw
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue 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 manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain voiced 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 ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Ashburn chiropractic patients at
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn highly regard their chiropractic care! Ashburn

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Ashburn athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation may be just that! 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 lasted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced increased
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 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 boosts your edge. Let us talk
at your next Ashburn chiropractic appointment.
