Facts About the Opioid Crisis in America

  • Opioids are a class of pain-relieving drugs that are highly addictive—and overly prescribed, starting in the 1990s when drug manufacturers incorrectly reassured physicians and consumers that they weren't addictive. Street varieties of opioids include heroin and fentanyl.
  • Nearly 30% of people prescribed opioids misuse them; about 80% of people who use heroin started by misusing prescription opioids. 
  • According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 people die in the United States every day as a result of opioid abuse or overdose. 
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that the current opioid epidemic costs the United States $78.5 billion annually.

5 Ways our Chiropractors in North Carolina Fight the Opioid Epidemic

We're doing our part to reduce the impact of drug and opioid abuse in our community by providing local people with non-invasive and drug-free treatment options for acute and chronic pain conditions: 

  1. Through adjustments, we can realign joints and alleviate pressure on compressed nerves, eliminating a major source of back and limb pain. 
  2. Adjustments also trigger the neurologically-mediated release of natural pain-relieving chemicals in your body. 
  3. We teach people safer ways to move to eliminate recurring stress on the body. 
  4. Corrective exercises decrease pain, swelling, and inflammation, and increase muscle strength, flexibility, and endurance.
  5. Soft tissue therapy like massage and Active Release Technique (ART) stimulates healing circulation and reduced tissue tension.
