Impact of Chiropractic Care on Use of Prescription Opioids in Patients with Spinal Pain

PATIENTS WITH SPINAL PAIN WHO SAW A CHIROPRACTOR HAD HALF THE RISK OF FILLING AN OPIOID PRESCRIPTION. Among those who saw a chiropractor within 30 days of diagnosis, the reduction in risk was greater as compared with those with their first visit after the acute phase.
