Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief - Safe Alternative to Opioid Use 

Written By Mattia Spinal Care & Rehab Center, P.A. on January 27, 2020

chiropractic care treatmentDid you know that even short-term use of opioid painkillers can cause significant side effects? 

According to a recent study, patients reported drowsiness, weakness, constipation, nausea, and vomiting after taking opioids for less than two weeks. 

Additionally, these pain meds usually work by numbing the pain. This may give you a false impression that your musculoskeletal pain isn’t severe or has healed, leading to overexertion or permanent injury. 

To make matters worse, the long-term use of opioids for pain can lead to addiction and physical dependence. Fortunately, there’s a natural pain relief alternative to opioid use – chiropractic care. 

Why Chiropractic Treatment is a Safe Pain Relief Alternative in Orlando, FL

Chiropractic care for musculoskeletal related pain involves treatments like spinal manipulation, massages, as well as passive and active exercises. These therapies not only reduce pain but also improve your range of motion and physical stability. 

When done by a qualified chiropractor, chiropractic treatments will subsequently eliminate the need for opioid medication. 

Chiropractic therapies also don’t come with adverse effects. On the contrary, many patients feel immediate pain relief after their first chiropractic adjustment. Some may feel mild soreness after a spinal manipulation, which fades away within 24 hours. However, this is dependent on where the pain is located and how severe it is.
