Chiropractic Use Inversely Rated To Opioid Use

In a recent review of studies published in the medical journal Pain Medicine, researchers found patients being treated for back and neck pain with chiropractic care were significantly less likely to use opioid prescriptions for pain relief. Opioids are prescribed by medical doctors to treat pain, including back and neck pain. However, opioids are highly addictive and have been massively overprescribed which has resulted in a massive misuse and abuse of the drug. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the 70,237 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2017, approximately two thirds (47,600) involved an opioid. Given these increasingly staggering numbers, a group of researchers set out to determine if there was any association between chiropractic care and prescription opioid use in the treatment of back and neck pain. What the researchers discovered during their review of current research was that patients receiving chiropractic care for back or neck pain had 64% lower odds of receiving an opioid prescription than those not receiving chiropractic care for their back or neck pain. While further studies are needed, the data thus far indicates chiropractic care for back and neck pain appears to reduce the need for far more dangerous forms of pain relief, such as opioids.

Exercise As Effective As Drugs

It’s concerning that many have taken a sort of inactive position when it comes to their health and inherent ability to get and stay well. We have moved towards becoming a sick or ‘unwell’ nation seeking ‘health’ through the services of a medical physician - a physician who most commonly provides a solution written on a prescription pad. The reality is that there are safe, natural and highly effective ways for us to overcome disease, get well and maintain good health and wellbeing. In a large review just published in the British Medical Journal, researchers from Britain's London School of Economics and Harvard and Stanford universities in the United States found no statistically detectable differences between exercise and drugs for patients with coronary heart disease or prediabetes, when a person shows symptoms that may develop into full-blown diabetes. Most of us already have the inherent tools to fight disease if we make the right choices - something doctors of chiropractic understand. If you’d like to learn more about improving your health the natural way, call your local doctor of chiropractic today!

More TV Equals Less Life

Watching TV may bring short-term enjoyment but too much TV time can not only be bad for your health, it can also shorten your life. Spanish researchers have found those who watch 3 or more hours of TV daily double their risk of an early death. Data from over 13,000 adults with an average age of 37 was analyzed to determine if time watching TV was related to an increase in earlier death. The results were substantial. As compared with those individuals watching an hour or less of TV per day, those watching 2 hours per day increased their risk of early death by 40 percent and those watching three or more hours daily doubled their risk for early mortality. According to researchers, a less active sedentary lifestyle increases body fat, reduces muscle and makes the body less responsive to insulin. As a result, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and certain cancers become more prominent, all of which are leading causes of death. So get up, get out and get active - and don’t forget to turn off the TV!
