Adult Chiropractic Care in Holland, MI
69.6 million adults in the United States deal with some sort of chronic pain according to the CDC. Chronic back pain is also the second most frequent cause of a visit to a primary care physician. Consequently, the prescription of opioid pain medication remains a common treatment for chronic back pain. As many as one in four patients receiving long-term opioid therapy in a primary care setting struggles with addiction. In 2016, 11.5 million Americans reported misusing prescription opioids (https://www.cdc.gov/opioids/basics/prescribed.html).
