Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
Toronto chronic pain is
extensive. Toronto opioid use is widespread.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Why? Opioids were welcomed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs rose, 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 ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
apt to get 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 expressed to
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Additionally, they are willing to pay for care
to maintain their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost varies
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) Toronto chiropractic patients at
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre highly regard their chiropractic care! Toronto

Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
Toronto athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their thing.
Spinal manipulation might be that edge! Elite
Taekwondo athletes felt added muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The added force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors went
on for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for at least 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - experienced better
performances in 2 football seasons during which they had
pre-game spinal manipulation treatments. (4) A recent report said that a single
pre-exercise SMT elicited 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’s chat
at your next Toronto chiropractic appointment.
