Don't Become Another Statistic.
Chiropractic and other conservative (non-drug) approaches to pain management can be an important first line of defense against addiction caused by the overuse of prescription opioid pain medications.
Chiropractic uses something called an adjustment to return vertebrae and bones to their optimal alignment. This allows the body to heal itself naturally by treating the cause of pain, instead of the symptom, without prescription drugs.
Chiropractic is a safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, drug-free form of healthcare that helps prevent opioid addiction by avoiding addictive prescription drugs in the first place.
Why does this matter?
North Carolina contains 4 of the top 25 cities with the highest opioid abuse rates, including #1 Wilmington. However, with over 2000 licensed North Carolina Chiropractors we can change these numbers and help citizens manage neck and back pain without opioid prescriptions.
Don’t just take our word for it, the ACP agrees.
The American College of Physicians updated their guidelines in 2017 and recommend chiropractic and other non-invasive, non-drug treatments of back pain before turning to prescription opioids.
Chiropractic can help in the fight against the opioid epidemic.
