October 2019 Healthy News: Vitamin C for Collagen and Chiropractic for Opioid Use Reduction

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic delivers chiropractic treatment as an option to opioids for back pain relief. 

CHIROPRACTIC AND/OR PT CARE DIMINISH OPIOID USE

The use of opioids is a much-debated topic today. “Epidemic” is often linked to it. Attempts to curtail this epidemic are deliberated. One potentially effective way to do this is to get low back pain sufferers to start care with a conservative healthcare provider (in place of a primary care provider) like a chiropractor, physical therapist or acupuncturist. When this occurred in a study of 216,504 US adults with a new low back pain episode, the early and long-term use of opioids was significantly decreased. (1) In an attempt to restrain opioid use after spine surgery, new prescribing limits have been initiated which seem to reduce the 30-day post-operative opioid use and not raise refills for prescriptions, visits to the ER, or unplanned hospital readmissions or reoperations for pain. (2) Another study explains that opioid use before spine surgery increased the time of opioid use after surgery and was linked to poorer short-term and long-term outcomes for cervical spine fusion. (3) Since most general practitioners in France (57.3%) reported not being confident in diagnosing and managing patients with lumbar spinal stenosis back pain - They ordered imaging (98.8%) and corticoid spinal injections (71.4%) and referred to another specialist (100%). – conservative care with practitioners like your Fort Wayne chiropractor makes much sense. (4) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is confident in diagnosing and treating back pain of many varieties! Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is pleased to extend care that contributes to resolving the issue of the opioid epidemic rather than contributing to it.

VITAMIN C BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION

With a goal of improving connective tissue, researchers are evaluating assorted nutritional interventions. Adding vitamin C enriched gelatin or hydrolyzed collagen supplementation one hour before exercise is found to potentially improve collagen synthesis. (5) An analysis of current literature on vitamin C efficacy stated that it potentially accelerates bone healing after a fracture, boosts type I collagen synthesis, and decreases oxidative stress in an antioxidative role…with no adverse effects! (6) When it comes to benefits for musculoskeletal issues, information like this on vitamin C excites your Fort Wayne chiropractor!
