National Opioid Crisis Expert Dr. John Rosa Suggests Pill-Free Method To Manage Lower Back Pain
By: Dr. John Rosa
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."
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."
