Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
West Des Moines chronic pain is
extensive. West Des Moines opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa. Why? Opioids were hailed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks rose.
Options and co-treatment approaches are demanded. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in six studies of
chiropractic use and opioid prescribing, usage 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 obtain a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to other healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using routine chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be greater without such
chiropractic care. Further, 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) West Des Moines chiropractic patients at
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa value their chiropractic care! West Des Moines

West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
West Des Moines athletes – recreational and professional
– crave that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation could be that edge! 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 at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt increased
performances in two 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 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 chat
at your next West Des Moines chiropractic appointment.
