Opioid statistics are staggering. Despite an international pandemic for covid-19, opioid drugs continue to prove far more deadly. Statistics show that one of every three Americans takes opioid drugs and 1.9 million people face addiction. An astonishing 115 people die each and every day from opioid drugs. An infusion of opioids into society initially served to help people dealing with daily pain but a Pandora’s box of consequences followed.

A 2015 study determined that a baby comes into this world every 25 minutes addicted to opioid drugs due to a birth mom who used opioid drugs during pregnancy. A mother’s receptors create a chemical dependency from potent medications in the blood. The same chemical dependency transfers to the fetus. The physical cost to the baby combines with an estimated fifty thousand dollars expense to fully rehab a baby from an opioid dependency.

A key factor solving this crisis begins upstream with addressing the cause of the problem. 63.4% of opioid users report starting drug use to treat a physical pain. Implementing a drugless solution for physical pain prevents the need for addictive narcotics. A proactive solution awaits with chiropractic care.

Research from 2018 looked at the benefits of chiropractic care as they relate to opioid use. Pain relief resulting from chiropractic services allowed patients to use lower and less frequent doses of opioids, leading to a reduced risk of adverse effects. Research continues to pile up and point out the much-needed benefits chiropractors deliver to a sick and suffering culture of people constantly directed to consume more pills in pursuit of pain relief.
