Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.

Buffalo, NY chronic pain is rampant. Buffalo, NY opioid use is widespread. What’s an effective option? Chiropractic with The Novelli Wellness Center. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill answer for chronic pain…costs rose, risks increased. Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 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 problem were 49% less liable to receive 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 expressed to researchers that their pain would be greater without such chiropractic care. Additionally, 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) Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients at The Novelli Wellness Center appreciate their chiropractic care! Buffalo, NY chiropractic services benefit chronic pain along with or without opioids.

The Novelli Wellness Center offers spinal manipulation to athletes of all types – recreational and professional – to boost their efforts.

Buffalo, NY CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports

Buffalo, NY athletes – recreational and professional – desire that edge when they do their activity. Spinal manipulation might be just that! Elite Taekwondo athletes felt improved 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 persisted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players – offensive and defensive - felt improved performances in 2 football seasons during which they obtained 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 in charge of controlling the body's unconscious actions) dominance and slightly lessened performance in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let us chat at your next Buffalo, NY chiropractic appointment.
