Chiropractic Care and Opiods
Well, this is a great way to head into the weekend! According to research presented at this year's annual meeting of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM): "In a new meta-analysis and systematic review, patients who visited a chiropractor for a musculoskeletal pain condition were 49% less likely to receive an opioid prescription than their counterparts who went to other healthcare providers."
This is NOT to say that other healthcare providers do not provide relief, but rather that Chiropractic Care can be an EFFECTIVE option. Here's the thing, friends. You have options! Research your options and find a provider who is JUST as interested in helping you get better as YOU are!
