The opioid crisis has continued to be a part of our lives and the pandemic has resulted in a surge in misuse and death.  Chiropractors provide treatment methods that have been shown to reduce the initiation of opioids and reduce pain.  This discussion will focus on steps and practices that chiropractors can take to be part of this solution and be part of the team to reduce pain and improve function. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define your role as a key provider in the team to reduce opioid use and improve patient pain levels 
  • Prepare to communicate with various stakeholders about opioid use and how you can help 
  • Illustrate how you can become an effective non-opioid solution to the opioid crisis
