Ignoring effective, drug-free pain management for many decades has taken a deadly toll on tens of thousands of Americans. As many as one in four patients who received prescription opioids long-term for pain management struggles with addiction. In addition, more than 1,000 people are treated in the ER for misusing opioids. Worse yet, deaths involving opioids are six times higher today than in 1999; In 2017 more than 47,000 people died from overdoses involving pain reducing medications. That same year, another 2 million people abused or were dependent on opioids.

Chiropractic care is a great and effective alternative!
