Chiropractic Patients Demonstrate The Lowest Opioid Use | Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic
Two Recent Studies Just Concluded That Chiropractic Patients Demonstrate the LOWEST Opioid Use:
1. “Patients who received initial treatment from (chiropractors) had decreased odds of opioid use compared with those who received initial treatment from primary care physicians.”
2. “Chiropractic users had a 64% lower odds of receiving an opioid prescription than non-users.”
Educating people about alternative options of care is one way that we can help to put an end to the opioid crisis.
