The Opiod Crisis and it's Effects On You

The Opiod Crisis and it’s Effects On You

Have you or a loved one ever used prescription painkillers for pain management?

In the past two decades, the use of pharmacological opioids has increased ten-fold and has affected every American in one way or another. Opioids have detrimental side effects on your body, and on relationships mentally and emotionally. A few effects are listed below:

  1. A loved one you care about can pass away from an overdose.
  2. You can develop an addiction.
  3. Your teen or you can develop a substance abuse disorder.
  4. A baby may be born with neonatal abstinence syndrome.
  5. The cost to American taxpayers is in the billions.

Many Americans are veering away from using analgesic medications and turning to alternatives such as chiropractic for a more permanent pain relief. If you or someone you know are looking for alternatives to medications that have addictive side effects, call Fogarty Chiropractic at (321) 636-5200 for information and to schedule your appointment today.
