The U.S. prescribes opioids at an alarming rate of 50 times more than all other nations combined. The excessive opioid prescriptions have primarily been written to treat acute pain. However, acute pain is usually contributed to musculoskeletal damage, also referred to as mechanical pain. Mechanical pain is commonly caused by abnormal stress and strain on muscles of the spinal column. Typically from poor posture, incorrect bending, and lifting motions. Chiropractic care is the effective non-drug alternative to opioids.
Passive approaches such as rest and pain medication have been linked to increased pain with little to no recovery. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and drug-free approach to healing the body naturally.
