Opioids Crisis: How Chiropractic Can Help

Need another reason to avoid opioids and embrace drugless options such as Chiropractic Care for pain relief (not to mention pain prevention)?

 

Try money and manipulation – both used shamelessly by opioid manufacturers to fuel the opioid epidemic, which costs nearly 100 Americans their lives every day.

While growing awareness of the opioid crisis has spurred ongoing changes at both the policy and practice level, it might not have been necessary if not for the relationship between opioid manufacturers and advocacy groups, according to a shocking new report from the U.S. Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee.

 

Evidence That Can’t Be Ignored

 

Fueling an Epidemic: Exposing the Financial Ties Between Opioid Manufacturers and Third-Party Advocacy Groups “provides the first comprehensive snapshot of the financial connections between opioid manufacturers and advocacy groups and professional societies operating in the area of opioids policy,” according to the executive summary, which outlines the disturbing nature of the “connections” and their impact on the opioid epidemic:

“Disclosures from Purdue Pharma L.P., Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Mylan N.V., Depomed, Inc., and Insys Therapeutics, Inc. … describe nearly $9 million in payments from these manufacturers to 14 outside groups working on chronic pain and other opioid-related issues between 2012 and 2017. In addition, physicians affiliated with these groups accepted more than $1.6 million in payments from the five manufacturers between 2013 and the present.”

“Initiatives from the groups in this report often echoed and amplified messages favorable to increased opioid use — and ultimately, the financial interests of opioid manufacturers. These groups have issued guidelines and policies minimizing the risk of opioid addiction and promoting opioids for chronic pain, lobbied to change laws directed at curbing opioid use, and argued against accountability for physicians and industry executives responsible for overprescription and misbranding.”

 

 

Why Chiropractic Matters More Than Ever

 

If there’s any possible upside to the opioid epidemic, it’s that the crisis is now front and center. Policy- and practice-level changes are being implemented to replace prescription pain-relief medications such as opioids with safer alternatives as the first option – including chiropractic care.

Of course, chiropractors have always practiced drugless care and provided effective, natural pain relief for a variety of conditions. Now, they’re being increasingly recognized for that care not only on its own merits but as a better, safer option that can save lives by helping patients avoid opioids – and the horrible conspiracy that fueled their use and abuse.

Chiropractors didn’t cause the opioid crisis, but they sure can help end it. Talk to your chiropractor for more information.

Stem Cell Therapy: Is it Right for You?

 

Stem Cell Therapy is one of the newest, most versatile, safe, and highly effective non-invasive medical treatments available today.

 

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy uses your own body’s healing capacity to transform damaged cells into new, healthy cells. These new cells then replicate, creating additional new, healthy cells; these cells can become a range of cell types, including but not limited to bone cells, cartilage cells, and muscle cells.

Stem Cells grow into healthy versions of unhealthy or damaged cells, resulting in faster healing and providing alternatives to costly, painful, and invasive surgeries. 

There’s no doubt Stem Cell Therapy has been a tremendous benefit for countless patients who want to be free of pain and get back to an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

We’re sure you are wondering about Stem Cell Therapy and if it will work for you.

The biggest question we encounter is, am I a good candidate for this remarkably new non-invasive treatment option?

The questions below will help you determine whether or not you should pursue Stem Cell Therapy.

 

♦ Do you suffer from chronic joint pain due to osteoarthritis or an acute joint injury?

How successful? While clinical tests routinely delivered an 85% success rate, our offices have around a 98% success rate with our patients experiencing life-changing benefits thanks to Stem Cell Therapy.

 

♦ Would you rather have a less invasive, drug-free, long-term treatment for your chronic pain?

knee pain surgery or stem cellsStem Cell Therapy is, for many patients, the best alternative to highly-invasive, painful, and potentially ineffective joint replacement surgery.

With Stem Cell Therapy, patients typically begin feeling relief a few weeks after the initial procedure — some of our patients have told us it’s almost overnight — and this relief often continues for years, resulting in decreased pain and increased mobility WITHOUT SURGERY or the need for addictive prescription meds for pain!

 

♦ Do you want to avoid surgery if possible?

Stem Cell Therapy heals the disease or damage causing the pain, because of this, Stem Cell Therapy is an effective alternative to many traditional joint repair surgeries like knee replacement. Plus, there is no downtime!

Patients who receive Stem Cell injections often delay the need for surgery for many years, sometimes even longer. Because stem cells heal the treated areas, many patients find they no longer need surgery at all.

 

♦ Are you interested in a non-invasive treatment that can be performed in-office with no negative side-effects and a high success rate?

amniotic allograft cord blood stem cellsBecause Stem Cell Therapy uses an amniotic allograft and/or cord blood stem cells from viable donors — all donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) — to heal or replace damaged cells, patients are not at risk of many side-effects common invasive joint replacement surgery.

The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes in our office to perform and once again, most of our patients have reported an almost overnight relief of their pain, with an almost 98% success rate with our patients.

Whiplash symptoms Atlantic Canton Chiro Rehab Chiropractic

Whiplash Symptoms – Hard to Understand

Whiplash Symptoms May Be Hard for Others to Understand

A whiplash injury occurs when the head and neck (cervical spine) unexpectedly get whipped back and forth. In today’s world, this injury most commonly happens when hit from behind by a vehicle.

If your whiplash symptoms linger, it may be hard for others to relate to what you’re going through.

Some questions could include:

“You felt fine after the accident. How can you be in so much pain and discomfort weeks later?”

“My friend recovered from whiplash within a few days. Maybe it’s just in your mind?”

Despite what other people might think, whiplash symptoms can indeed be mysterious and evolve over a period of weeks and months. Some symptoms may fade away as new ones develop. While most people fully recover from whiplash within 3 months, others may experience symptoms that last much longer and become chronic.

Let’s review some key facts about whiplash to help put this injury in perspective.

Pain can be delayed

We’re used to most collision injuries becoming painful immediately. For example, if you fall and land hard on your hand, it starts hurting right away. However, a whiplash injury may take up to 24 hours or more before it becomes painful.

It is not uncommon for someone to be rear-ended by another car and refuse medical attention at the scene, but then wake up the next day with neck pain.

Pain is not the only whiplash symptom

Neck pain, stiffness, and other aches in surrounding areas are commonly associated with whiplash injury. However, the symptoms are not always straightforward and can include whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) that go beyond just pain.

Some examples of whiplash symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Vision problems
  • Emotional changes
  • Trouble with memory or concentration
  • Problems with getting enough sleep
  • Ringing in ears (tinnitus)
  • Difficulty with chewing, talking, and/or swallowing

Some whiplash-associated disorders may be related to a concussion that occurred during the collision, but the exact cause of these symptoms cannot always be accurately diagnosed.

Whiplash-associated disorders may go away quickly or last for months or longer. If left untreated, whiplash symptoms can increase fatigue, stress levels, and feelings of social isolation.

Seemingly minor collisions can cause whiplash

While there is a correlation between the collision’s force and severity of whiplash symptoms, sometimes the results can be surprising.

A couple examples include:

A lack of car damage can be misleading. In cases where a car looks OK after the collision, the forces that were not absorbed by the vehicle’s surface may instead go through the seat and worsen the whiplash. On the other hand, a car might have visible damage and/or look crunched-up, but the exterior absorbed more of the forces and possibly resulted in less whiplash.

Whiplash can occur at low speeds. Whiplash injuries have been reported in collisions of less than 10 miles per hour in the medical literature.1 Some people with weaker neck muscles or other conditions that make the cervical spine more susceptible to injury are likely factors.
See Diagnosing Whiplash

If you or a loved one suspect a whiplash injury has occurred, it’s important to consult with a doctor. Seeking treatment for whiplash sooner rather than later tends to result in better recovery outcomes.
