Time for Change: Pain Relief Without Opioids
By Editorial Staff
"There is no better place on earth to have a news event," the National Press Club boasts, and it's easy to understand why: Every year, the 108-year-old Washington, D.C.-based organization hosts countless press conferences on the hottest topics impacting America and often the world.
That backdrop makes the recent invitation-only press briefing by the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress as important as it deserves to be, considering the topic and the opportunity to expand awareness of the chiropractic profession's role in preventing and managing chronic pain.
The topic: the opioid crisis. The event: the official launch of the foundation's "Save Lives. Stop Opioid Abuse. Choose Chiropractic" campaign.
Distinguished speakers at this historic event outlined the scope of the crisis, putting blame squarely on prescribing doctors and the current pain-management system while urging nondrug alternatives, including chiropractic care.
Here are a few soundbites from the distinguished panel of presenters that should whet your appetite for the complete briefing, available online in its entirety at www.f4cp.com/watchpressclub/. Watch it and learn how chiropractic can play a role in managing pain without drugs.
To learn more about the opioid crisis, and why the foundation and others are so excited about the potential for chiropractic care and other therapies to provide a drug-free alternative, read our article in the March issue, "7 Signs and Symptoms: Opioid Prescription Is Leading to Danger."
