Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief - Safe Alternative to Opioid Use

Written By North Florida Spine and Wellness Institute on October 5, 2018

There’s no denying that the United States is in the midst of an opioid crisis.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that more than 66 percent of deaths due to drug overdose are caused by opioids. In fact, an average of 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses every day.

With statistics like that, it’s more important than ever to find safe, effective pain relief alternatives to prescription medications.

Chiropractic – A Pain Relief Alternative You Can Count On

Chiropractic care has been proven to provide natural pain relief for multiple types of pain, including, but not limited to:

  • Low back pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Mid-back pain
  • Musculoskeletal conditions

By gently manipulating spinal structures to ease them back into position to restore proper nerve and muscular function, chiropractors are able to relieve pain without the need for over-the-counter or prescription medications.

And spinal manipulation is a safe and effective way to control discomfort. 

Combined with other chiropractic techniques, it can be a valuable tool for relieving — or eliminating — acute and chronic pain.

Some other ways chiropractors help their patients manage pain include:

  • TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Heat and ice
  • Rehabilitative exercises
  • General exercise plans
  • Nutritional and lifestyle counseling
  • Dietary supplements

Your chiropractor is trained in a whole-body approach to health — meaning he or she will consider all aspects of your health, including nutrition, exercise, stress levels, and other lifestyle factors that can contribute to pain you may be experiencing.
