If you experience lower back pain, you are not alone. In fact, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funds an ongoing study of disability causes worldwide. In the 2016 study, the leading cause for disability continues to be pain in the low back. Back Pain frequently causes Americans to miss work and is second only to upper-respiratory infections for visits to see a primary care physician.1

Many people ask? Should you visit a Chiropractor before visiting your primary care physician for relief from back pain?

Absolutely, patients making appointments with their primary care physician for low back pain are prescribed highly addictive opioids > 70% of the time. This overdose of opioids has caused their use to be classified as an “Epidemic in America” where it is now the leading cause of accidental deaths. In 2017, The American College of Physicians updated their guidelines for treatment of low back pain to recommend care that is conservative first. This includes care such as: chiropractic, acupuncture and physiotherapies, all which are offered and expertly coordinated.

The American College of Physicians now advises that the risk of overdose and addiction outweigh the benefits of prescription opioids and they should only be used as a last resort. In fact, a recent presentation hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta from CNN, summarized that “Addiction to prescribed opioids is leading to the most common cause of preventable death in America today.”2

The Center for Disease Control “The CDC” acknowledged that chronic pain can be difficult to control, can limit work and activities causing consequences that are psychological, social, and clinical. The stigma and reduced quality of life cause the CDC to emphasize how important is to give these patients compassionate care.
