Chronic Pain: Opioids? Use Chiropractic Instead.
La Grande chronic pain is
rampant. La Grande opioid use is epidemic.
What is an effective option? Chiropractic with
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. Why? Opioids were acclaimed as a pill solution
for chronic pain…costs increased, risks soared.
Options and co-treatment approaches are called for. In a
research investigation of 62,000 patients in 6 studies of
chiropractic utilization and opioid prescribing, usage of
chiropractic care ranged from 11.3% to 51.3%. Patients who visited
a chiropractor for their musculoskeletal pain problem were 49% less
apt to get a prescription for an
opioid than those who went to different healthcare providers. (1)
Patients using on-going chiropractic care to cope with
their chronic low-back and neck pain told
researchers that their pain would be more without such
chiropractic care. Further, they are willing to pay for care
to keep their mild pain levels. The “willingness to pay” cost ranges
from $37.32 to $45.98. (2) La Grande chiropractic patients at
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC highly regard their chiropractic care! La Grande

La Grande CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Spinal Manipulation Before Sports
La Grande athletes – recreational and professional
– desire that edge when they do their sport.
Spinal manipulation could be just that! Elite
Taekwondo athletes experienced increased muscle
strength and corticospinal excitability to ankle plantar flexor muscles after
just one spinal manipulation. The improved force of the
maximum voluntary contraction of the plantar flexors lasted for 30 minutes and the corticospinal excitability increase lasted for not less than 60 minutes. (3) Virginia Tech football players
– offensive and defensive - felt better
performances in two football seasons during which they had
spinal manipulation treatments before
games. (4) A recent report shared that a single
pre-exercise SMT brought about a heightened shift toward
parasympathetic (the part of the autonomic nervous system in
charge of controlling the body's unconscious actions)
dominance and slightly lessened performance
in recreational healthy athletes. (5) Time to try spinal manipulation for
yourself! See if it boosts your edge. Let us chat
at your next La Grande chiropractic appointment.
