Chiropractic and the Prescription Opioid Abuse Epidemic
The prescription opioid overuse and abuse epidemic is at an all time high. This affects the lives of tens of thousands of people in the United States.
We at Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic believe that there is a better approach to pain. In 2014 alone, more than 14,000 people died from overdoses involving prescription pain medication1.
Choosing conservative forms of pain management such as chiropractic care before trying riskier treatments reduces the risk of addiction and misuse.
