Chiropractic Care for Veterans
“Collectively, we need to implement changes across the health care continuum, and
the care provided by a doctor of chiropractic is the key to effectively managing pain and avoiding opioid drug treatment,"
adds Dr. McAllister, who notes that Americans consume 80% of the world’s opioid supply, despite comprising less than 5% of the global population.
Under the new guidelines, the CDC encourages doctors to utilize conservative care prior to prescription painkiller treatment, and prescribe painkillers only after considering non-addictive pain relievers, behavioral changes and alternative options.
