Could taking opioids actually make pain worse?
In an animal study published this year in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia researchers found that giving rats a "moderate dose" of morphine following exploratory abdominal surgery made their pain last 3 weeks longer than rats who had not received the drug.
The longer they received the drug, the longer their pain lasted. They also experienced greater markers of inflammation in their nervous systems. They concluded the increased pain was not related to tapering off the drug.
A previous study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2016 showed just a few days of treatment with opiates to treat a condition like sciatica could exacerbate and prolong pain for months in animals. This was partly due to increased expression of inflammatory proteins in the body.
The lesson - Avoid surgery and opioid drugs whenever possible! Exhaust all conservative methods first, including corrective chiropractic, massage, exercise, physical therapy, dietary modifications, cognitive behavioral therapy, and meditation.
2009 Clarendon Hills Liandra Vineyard Syrah. Really like these wines. I probably bought a couple dozen bottles of various Clarendon Hills Syrah, Cab and Grenache about five years ago from a few online retailers. My guess is that the winery’s sales were effected by the global economic downturn back in 2010 and thereafter. Accordingly pricing on their wines was significantly cut in the market so I was able to get bottles for around 30usd which is a bargain in my mind. This bottle is drinking very nicely right now. Very dark color with aromas of blueberries and plum with a little bit of earth. On the palate, a brooding wine that still has chewy tannins but is nicely balanced with hints of bell pepper and grassy components. I’m a big fan of Clarendon Hills especially at the price I paid! This wine is right in its prime drinking window imo, not sure they will get much better with age but will probably hold for another decade. #wine#redwine#syrah#shiraz#australianwine#clarendonhills#winereview#winestagram#winediary007#goodvalue#bargainshopper
One of many pieces of evidence that #chiropractic care is just plain safe.
Another was a study that found seniors who visited a chiropractor for a neuromusculoskeletal complaint were far less likely to suffer side effects from treatment than if they visited an MD for the same complaint.
