Aaron Chiropractic Clinic Offers Chiropractic Care Which May Reduce the Need of Opioids

The epidemic of opioid use. It’s been in the news. A good way to avoid relying on opioids is to not have to start with them. The society and the medical community are (coming) together about this topic. Recent research presents the benefit chiropractic care has in decreasing the need, prescribing, and use of opioids. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is happy to satisfy the additional role of pain management for Fort Wayne back pain sufferers!

CHIROPRACTIC BACK PAIN PATIENTS AND THEIR USE OF OPIOIDS

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows the frequent opioid use in low back pain management. Researchers do, also. They analyzed low back pain patients treated by chiropractors to see if said chiropractic patients were less likely to use or more prone to use lower doses of opioids for their pain. Such an effect could lead to a reduced risk of adverse effects. They saw that chiropractic patients as opposed to non-chiropractic patients were 55% less prone to fill an opioid prescription, a significantly lower number. (1) There are many Fort Wayne chiropractic patients who would like to not get their opioid prescriptions. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is here to help them control their back pain with the addition of Fort Wayne chiropractic care.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE IN A MEDICAL SETTING: THE POSITIVE IMPACT

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic often communicates with medical colleagues to help our Fort Wayne back pain patients manage their pain. Research endorses such an effort! The study of a family medicine practice that incorporated chiropractic services reported fluctuations in opioid prescription rates. The monthly rate of opioid prescription writing decreased significantly by 22%. The rate of prescription writing for schedule II opioids dropped significantly by 32% too. The likelihood of writing a schedule II opioid prescription fell by 27%, too, when chiropractic services were added. Medical providers prescribed daily doses of opioids that were 30% less than before chiropractic was included. Adding chiropractic decreased the dosage of opioids, the number of opioid prescriptions, and the types of opioids prescribed. The authors indicated that including chiropractic was positive in opioid prescribing and implementation of a non-pharmaceutical alternative for pain management.
