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

Instead of opioids, Ottawa chiropractic is beneficial for chronic pain management and relief. 

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Ottawa chronic pain is extensive. Ottawa opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs climbed, risks soared. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research analysis of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic use 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 voiced to researchers that their pain would be more without such chiropractic care. Further, 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) Ottawa chiropractic patients at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider value their chiropractic care! Ottawa chiropractic services benefit chronic pain in addition to 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 using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management permitted a patient to “forget” to visit him for a year as his pain was absent!

The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Ottawa CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Ottawa athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their sport. Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced improved 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 went on for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - experienced increased performances in 2 football seasons during which they received spinal manipulation treatments before games. (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 regulating the body's unconscious actions) dominance and marginally diminished 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 Ottawa chiropractic appointment.
