Chiropractic Care Helps Pain Patients Get Off Opiod Drugs: Award Winning Project
A Candian pilot project has shown phenomenal results in relieving chronic back pain in patients and getting them off opiod dugs like Percoset and Tylenol #3. A key part of the program is Chiropractic care. Dr. Bruce Flynn, shown in the picture, said as the project progressed, “The data was showing there was a major reduction in medication use, including opioid medications."
83 per cent of patients relied less upon pain medication following treatment.
93 per cent said the quality of their lives improved as a result of having less pain.
A 51 per cent decline in disability between initial examination and re-examination was found.
The study also integrated other therapists and pharmacists, integrated with the Chiropractic care.
