Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Offers Chiropractic Care Which May Reduce the Need of Opioids

Opioid epidemic. It’s been in the news. An efficient way to avoid relying on opioids is to not have to start with them. The public and the medical community are (coming) together about this topic. New research describes the benefit chiropractic care has in reducing the prescribing, need, and use of opioids. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is glad to satisfy the additional role of pain management for Montreal back pain sufferers!

CHIROPRACTIC BACK PAIN PATIENTS AND THEIR USE OF OPIOIDS

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands the frequent opioid use in low back pain management. Researchers do, too. They analyzed low back pain patients cared for by chiropractors to find out if said chiropractic patients were less prone to use or more likely to use lower doses of opioids for their pain. Such an influence could lead to a decreased risk of adverse effects. They saw that chiropractic patients versus non-chiropractic patients were 55% less prone to fill an opioid prescription, a significantly lower number. (1) There are many Montreal chiropractic patients who would like to not fill their opioid prescriptions. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here to help them control their back pain with the addition of Montreal chiropractic care.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE IN A MEDICAL SETTING: THE POSITIVE IMPACT

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic often cooperates with medical colleagues to be of assistance to our Montreal back pain patients in managing their pain. Research supports such an endeavor! The study of a family medicine practice that integrated chiropractic services found fluctuations in opioid prescription rates. The monthly rate of opioid prescription writing decreased significantly by 22%. The rate of prescription writing for schedule II opioids dropped significantly by 32% too. The likelihood of writing a schedule II opioid prescription dropped by 27%, too, when chiropractic services were included. Medical providers prescribed daily doses of opioids that were 30% less than before chiropractic was included. Including chiropractic reduced the dosage of opioids, the number of opioid prescriptions, and the kinds of opioids prescribed. The authors suggested that including chiropractic was beneficial in opioid prescribing and implementation of a non-pharmaceutical option for pain management.
