Conservative care and the opioid crisis

It is not something new for people in pain to seek pain relief. It is not a new thing for people to use medications to relieve acute or chronic pain. And, sometimes, that may include powerful drugs called opioids. Opioids have a place in medicine especially after surgery or a serious injury. But, the use of these drugs can actually change the way we perceive pain and can predispose a person to addiction!

Numerous studies have shown that conservative care ( including Chiropractic) can be much more effective in relieving pain, stimulating healing, lowering the use of opioids and preventing opioid abuse and addiction. Controlling inflammation, gentle motion, rest, counseling/therapy, meditation, acupuncture and, of course, the restoration of motion and nerve function with Chiropractic can greatly reduce opioid use.

Thank You For Speaking Out on the Horizon ASH Merger!

The New Jersey Division of Banking and Insurance has disapproved the proposed merger of Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield With American Specialty Health Network. This was in response to over 230,000 emails sent by Chiropractic patients and their families protesting the merger and the likely restrictions on health care benefits that such merger would have brought.

Your actions saved the day, by making the Legislators listen to the will of their constituents. Your prompt and consistent actions spoke out to maintain a voice in your health choices. Congratulations in this victory over insurance policy "hocus pocus" designed to deprive patients of necessary Chiropractic (and other) care!

It is possible that there may be other attempts to restrict access to needed benefits, but I will certainly keep you apprised of anything that comes down the way. In the meantime, you can visit Association of New Jersey Chiropractors for more information.
