Study Shows if Patients See Chiropractor Rather than MD Opioid Use Reduced by 90%

Kazis, L.E. et al. Observational retrospective study of the association of initial healthcare provider for new-onset lowback pain with early and long-term opioid use. BMJ Open. 2019;9:e028633. doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2018-028633



"Over the past decade, there has been an increase in opioid use in the USA, with over 12 million Americans reporting long-term opioid use or misuse in 2015. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported over 42 000 prescription opioid-related deaths in 2016, with total estimated costs of prescription opioid use reaching US $78.5 billion."

"Initial treatment from conservative therapists in those with LBP [low back pain] was associated with a marked decrease in the odds of early and long-term opioid use [compared to initial treatment from a medical physician of any type]."

Patients initially visiting a chiropractor had 90% decreased odds of early opioid use compared to patients who initially saw a medical doctor of any type.


"Incentivising use of conservative therapists may be a strategy to reduce risks of early and long-term opioid use."


"Additionally, the conservative therapy provided may result in decreased pain and improved back-related function so that patients do not need or seek opioid medications."

By actually addressing the cause of the pain (restricted, inflamed, degenerating spinal motion segments) and by improving health and function with chiropractic adjustments, chiropractic care removes the need for opioids and other drugs or treatments whose only aim is to mask pain and dysfunction by numbing patients. This not only saves money, it saves lives.


The underlying cause of spinal pain is reduced motion, inflammation and scar tissue, altered nerve signals, and deconditioning of the spinal muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. The only way to resolve this is to restore motion, break up scar tissue, restore proper nerve signals, and recondition spinal tissues. Chiropractic, Exercise, and OmegA+D Sufficiency represent the most evidence-based, most effective, and most cost-effective approach to resolve symptoms, restore health and function, and improve quality of life.

Yours in great health,

Dr. DJ of Full Potential Chiropractic in Calgary
