Treating Pain Through Chiropractic Practices- Avoiding the Opioids

AMERICAN FORK, UT- January 12, 2018 Every month in Utah 24 people die due to prescription opioid abuse. Many of us know someone effected by the new opidemic, it effects our family, our friends, and our community. Chiropractic is focused on helping you gain true health without the use of drugs or surgery.

Because of the recent opioid epidemic in Utah, Intermountain Health Care has set the goal for the upcoming year to decrease opioid prescription by 40%. As part of the goal Intermountain is reaching out to other effective treatments like chiropractic for pain management.

Intermountain recently invited Dr Marc Nelson to speak at the Pain Symposium in Park City Utah. Dr Nelson is an expert on chiropractic and pain management, and currently helps patients on a daily basis in his privately-owned clinic, Cadence Chiropractic. in American Fork Utah.  

During the beginning of Dr Nelson’s career he had the great opportunity to work at Myrtle Hilliard Davis Health Centers in St Louis Missouri. Myrtle Hilliard was established as a way for underserved populations to get the health care they need. In St Louis city 29.3% of the population falls below the national poverty line and over 13% of the entire state of Missouri is uninsured.

Dr Nelson had the opportunity to provide chiropractic care for hundreds of people suffering from pain to help them find a safe natural way to avoid pain killer medications and the dangerous addictions they can cause.

Chiropractic has been proven in the research to be a safe effective treatment for pain and Dr Nelson is currently petitioning to get chiropractic integrated into the health care systems of Utah to fight the opioid epidemic we face.
