Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Sandy Springs chronic pain is
rampant. Sandy Springs opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Cross Chiropractic Center. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill answer
for chronic pain…costs soared, risks increased.
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 take a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to manage
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be higher 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) Sandy Springs chiropractic patients at
Cross Chiropractic Center highly regard their chiropractic care! Sandy Springs

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Sandy Springs athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their activity.
Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt added muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors went
on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in two football seasons during which they received
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for regulating the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and slightly diminished performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it enhances your edge. Let’s talk
at your next Sandy Springs chiropractic appointment.
