Which one to start?

“Once you start, you’ll have to keep going.” It’s the oldest cliché you’ll hear about Chiropractic from those who’ve never given it a chance. Yet many of those same naysayers would gladly fill a prescription for OxyContin® or Vicadin® to relieve their chronic pain. Well, consider this.

In 2016 over 115 Americans died daily from opioid overdoses, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the 63,632 Americans who died of drug overdose that year. In 2018, more than 2 million Americans suffered from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids – an addiction that can take hold in as little as 5 days use, yet cause a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial devastation for the victims and loved ones involved. On the flip side…

A recent study by Yale School of Medicine now shows “Patients who have visited a chiropractor for musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions are currently 49% less likely to be issued and to receive an opioid prescription when compared to their counterparts who sought help from other healthcare providers.” Chiropractic care is well established as a safe and cost effective means to rid pain, restore function and get patients back on the road to health faster than Big Pharma can.
