Back in October of 2014, then-Governor John Kitzhaber made October Oregon Chiropractic Health and Wellness Month, citing figures from a seven year study that showed that patients who received chiropractic treatment had an 85 percent reduction in drug costs, among other advantages.
October is also National Chiropractic Health Month, and as part of its 2016 public awareness campaign, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced that October will mark the beginning of their #Chiropractic1st hashtag, which advocates for a conservative approach to pain management where chiropractic services are the first line of defense.
According to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), more than 259 million opioid painkiller prescriptions were written in 2012. Perhaps most shocking of all, overdose deaths related to opioid abuse have risen in every county of every state since 1999.
Opioid misuse and abuse is a widespread problem, and even the Center for Disease Control has taken notice: conservative care options like chiropractic are now preferred over opioids for treating things like chronic pain. Chiropractic-care is time-tested (it recently celebrated its 121st birthday on Sunday, September 18th) and can effectively treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries through techniques such as safe and gentle joint manipulation and mobilization.
If you suffer from chronic pain, choose #Chiropractic1st this October. Joy of Life is your best choice, so call (503)-682-9596 today to schedule your consultation, and be healthy by choice, not by chance.
