“Once you start, you’ll have to keep going.” It’s the oldest cliché you’ll hear about Chiropractic from those who’ve never given it a chance. Yet many of those same naysayers would gladly fill a prescription for OxyContin® or Vicadin® to relieve their chronic pain. Well, consider this.
In 2016 over 115 Americans died daily from opioid overdoses, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the 63,632 Americans who died of drug overdose that year. In 2018, more than 2 million Americans suffered from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids – an addiction that can take hold in as little as 5 days use, yet cause a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial devastation for the victims and loved ones involved.

A recent study by Yale School of Medicine now shows “Patients who have visited a chiropractor for musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions are currently 49% less likely to be issued and to receive an opioid prescription when compared to their counterparts who sought help from other healthcare providers.”
Chiropractic care is well established as a safe and cost effective means to rid pain, restore function and get patients back on the road to health faster than Big Pharma can. Start one that leads to potential death or one that leads to more Life – it’s your move.
