Dr. Alex Vidan of Vidan Family Chiropractic explained that 63.4% of opioid users start because of physical pain.
ST. LOUIS — Nationwide 2020 data will not be available until later this year, but health researchers are predicting at least a 27% jump in fatal overdoses compared to 2019.
This would be the largest single-year percentage increase in the past two decades. Dr. Alex Vidan of Vidan Family Chiropractic explained that 63.4% of opioid users start because of physical pain, and 25% of all opioid prescriptions are given for back pain.
Patients look to chiropractic care to correct the problem rather than to just mask the pain with a prescription. If it is a structural issue, opioids will not correct that problem.
