Chiropractic Care Demand Surges Due To Opioid Abuse

As more Americans struggle to find new and alternate ways to deal with physical discomfort and pain, experts like Dr. Aaron Richardet are seeing an increase in the demand for chiropractic care. Opioid abuse has been on the rise and has become a serious public health issue. Drug overdose has climbed up the ladder and now is the leading cause of death in the US for Americans under 50.

Chiropractic care is a viable and effective way to prevent addiction to pain pills by providing a non-invasive form of therapy and an alternative to invasive surgeries. Since the beginning of the practice in 1886 by David Palmer, it has been providing relief to several patients who are suffering from back pain. Earlier it was not widely accepted as a form of treatment. However, changing times have seen it evolve as one of the greatest alternative form of therapy available right now.

Earlier, chiropractic was based on the belief that the body possessed something called “innate intelligence”, which is the body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractors around the world believe this even today. However, it is not called innate intelligence anymore. They believe that the body possesses the unique ability to heal itself if all the spinal nerves are aligned perfectly. Most of the disorders or illnesses arise when the nerve tissues are misaligned and are out of order.

Opioid abuse have been a rising problem among Americans, since they easily available if you know where to find it. There were not many options available to the ones who were going through severe pain. However, once a person started using, he or she usually got hooked to it and had to go through rehabilitation to get rid of the abusive habit. Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to avoid getting hooked to these drugs.

Once you’ve been diagnosed by an expert chiropractor like Dr. Aaron Richardet, you would be shown what the treatment course would entail, including the number of sessions it would take to cure your condition. You will also feel pain relief after the very first adjustment/manipulation session. There is no risk of developing an addiction to drugs with this form of therapy, since there are no drugs involved. Your chiropractor would even advice you with diet plans, exercise routines etc. to keep you healthy and fit. Chiropractics is a blessing in disguise and it comes as no surprise when people choose the alternative non-invasive form of treatment over drug addiction.
