Chiropractic reduces Opioid use by 55% in low back pain

Over one in 4 adults have low back pain, Peterson et al in 2012 stated that low back pain is between 15-30% and has a lifetime prevalence of 50-80%.

Chronic pain is pain longer than 6 months after the healing of the original injury. . Chronic pain can lead to depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances and abnormal decision making.

A recent study by Whedon, Toler, Goel and Kazal (2018)

Showed that spinal manipulation is shown to be effective treatment option of chronic low back pain. The American College of Physicians now recommends nonpharmacological treatment first.

A study of over 160 000 patients found that Chiropractic treatments reduced the use of opioids.
