Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief - Safe Alternative to Opioid Use

Written By Spring Chiropractic on February 18, 2019

With all of the media coverage on the topic, it’s common knowledge that the United States is in the midst of an opioid crisis.

In fact, it is estimated that at least 2 million people in the U.S. are suffering from opioid use disorder that is directly attributed to the prescribing of opioid medications.

Due to this alarming increase in addiction, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has compiled guidelines for prescribing opioids and, not surprisingly, one of their recommendations is the use of nonopioid therapy to treat chronic pain.

One excellent therapy that is built around effective, non-medicinal treatments for both acute and chronic pain is chiropractic care.


How Chiropractic Banishes Pain without the Use of Drugs

Chiropractic care focuses on spinal manipulation to reposition joints, ligaments, bones, and muscles to reduce pain and inflammation while restoring proper function.

While most pain can be managed through a series of these safe and effective manipulations, if necessary, other therapies will be added to your treatment plan. These can include:

  • Exercise therapy

  • Physical therapy

  • Massage

  • Diet/Nutrition

  • Lifestyle assessments

Research shows chiropractic care relieves pain effectively — without the risk of addiction and the negative side-effects of prescription medication. 

Your chiropractor will give you a comprehensive neurological and physical exam that will assess not only your physical functioning, but your lifestyle, nutrition, and daily activities. 

If necessary, he’ll order diagnostic tests to pinpoint areas of concern.

Using this information, he will create a focused, individualized plan to help you manage your pain and increase your overall health without the use of medication.
