Chiropractic care and reduced opioid usage   https://academic.oup.com/painmedicine/article/21/12/3567/5788462

Patients with spinal pain who saw a chiropractor had half the risk of filling an opioid prescription. Among those who saw a chiropractor within 30 days of diagnosis, the reduction in risk was greater as compared with those with their first visit after the acute phase.

Research Supporting Chiropractic

Chiropractic care and headaches or migraines


There is a baseline of evidence to support chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, for the management of migraine and cervicogenic headaches. 

Chiropractic care and acute or subacute low back pain


Combined chiropractic interventions slightly improved pain and disability in the short‐term and pain in the medium‐term for acute and subacute LBP.

Chiropractic care, manual therapy, exercise therapy and neck pain


Strong recommendations were made for the treatment of chronic neck pain with manipulation, manual therapy, and exercise in combination with other modalities.

Myofascial release and low back pain


The improvements in the outcome measures for both groups suggest that remote myofascial release was effective in patients with chronic nonspecific LBP. The remote myofascial release of the lower limbs reduced the elastic modulus of the lumbar fascia and LBP.
