Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker shares how Chiropractic changed his integrative medical practice by allowing him to offer a drug-free and effective alternative to pain management.
ROCKVILLE, MD. February 3, 2020: Owner of Accessible Beltway Clinics and opioid crises expert, Dr. John Rosa, posted a new blog on his website entitled, “A Highly Accessible Method Effective In Managing Lower Back Pain Without Opioids,” in which Dr. Rosa reveals how the root of chronic lower back pain is missed by many doctors.
Referring back to the title of his blog, Dr. Rosa writes, “I am referring to chiropractic care.” He continues elaborating, “Chiropractic is a drug-free approach to pain relief and pain management. The American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends the use of non-invasive, drug-free treatments such as Chiropractic care, first for chronic and acute lower back pain. Additionally, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) encourages patients to seek conservative care, like drug-free chiropractic, before moving on to potentially addictive remedies for pain.”
As Dr. Rosa points out, “The introduction of integrative medicine, specifically chiropractic, has been a game changer for my practice.” He adds, “In years past when someone would come to my office with acute and chronic back pain, opioids were part of the possible relief mechanisms considered. However, I now have an alternative from day one resulting in a non-opioid medicine protocol and possibly even no meds of any kind at all.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “Lower back pain is one of the leading causes of opioid dependency. Lower back pain is also very difficult to treat because it can be hard to identify and eliminate the cause.” “Thus,” he adds, “many doctors prescribe pain killers to provide comfort to their patients while the actual problem remains unsolved.” Dr. Rosa states, “Chiropractors, however, can actually identify the root cause of lower back pain. Often lower back pain is caused by issues in our feet, ankles, knees, or hips.”
