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

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

Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Malverne chronic pain is extensive. Malverne opioid use is widespread. What is a solution? Chiropractic with Malverne Health & Wellness. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs rose, risks rose. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of chiropractic care fluctuated from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain issue were 49% less likely to take a prescription for an opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1) Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with their chronic low-back and neck pain expressed to researchers that their pain would be greater 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) Malverne chiropractic patients at Malverne Health & Wellness appreciate their chiropractic care! Malverne 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!

Malverne Health & Wellness offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to enhance their efforts.

Malverne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Malverne athletes – recreational and professional – crave that edge when they do their thing. Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite Taekwondo athletes experienced added 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 lasted 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 pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (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 in charge of controlling 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 enhances your edge. Let us chat at your next Malverne chiropractic appointment.
