Opioid Addiction | Chiropractic Care

With so many Americans suffering from chronic pain, such as sciatica, neck and back pain, the reliance on prescription medication has led to a record number of people falling into opioid addition. With the impact back and neck injuries have on a persons everyday routine, many people turn to opioids to get them through the work day and everyday home living.

What people do not understand is that prescription medications only treat the symptom (pain) while ignoring the cause of the pain. Chiropractic care offers a natural solution to pain relief, focusing on the underlying issue rather than simply masking your pain. Going to a chiropractor eliminates the need for opiods that often times lead the patient to habit forming addictions.

Chiropractic is a natural form of medicine that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignment s of the spine and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally.

Unlike opiods a medication that relieves pain by reducing signals to the brain. It is estimated that U.S. citizens, while making up less than 5 percent of the world population, use 80 percent of its opioids. Do you see the problem here?

Opioid addiction has become an epidemic in the United States and it will only get worse without education and control. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that more than 30,000 people a year die from opioid addition overdose in the US alone.
