Chiropractic Pain Relief Without Meds!

Did you know a study in 2013 reported that non-specific low back pain is a “relatively common recurrent condition.”   Unfortunately the front line treatment for it has typically been prescription meds. The sales of opioid pain relievers quadrupled from 1999 to 2010. In 2010, enough opioid prescriptions were written to “medicate every American adult” with a standard dose of 5mg of hydrocodone (Vicodin) every 4 hours for a month…a staggering but sad statistic.  In fact, more than 165,000 persons died from overdose related to opioid pain meds from 1999-2014.  A 2015 study showed spinal, hip and shoulder pain patients had modestly higher pain relief and satisfaction with chiropractors at a lower overall cost relative to those patients who initiated care with a medical doctor initially.  The costs of care were 40% lower with treatment initiated by a chiropractor.  Try chiropractic for your pain issues, it saves money, is more effective and your satisfaction will be higher!!
