Logan highlights non-drug pain treatments and wellness during National Chiropractic Health Month

In the wake of the national opiate abuse crisis, October marks National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) and provides an important opportunity to educate pain sufferers about the benefits of chiropractic care and its evidence-informed, patient-centered and drug-free approach to wellness.

This year's theme, "Back to Basics," emphasizes simple yet significant strategies for maintaining spinal health throughout a lifetime. Back pain is a major health issue: Up to 80 percent of people will suffer from the ailment during their lives, and it is one of the most common reasons patients begin taking medications.

NCHM's message couldn't be more important – according to the CDC, more than 90 Americans die each day from opioid abuse and overuse, and the number of deaths from overdoses has quadrupled since 1999. In 2014, more than 13,000 people died from overdoses, and another 2 million abused or were dependent on opioids.

"Chiropractors are uniquely poised to work side-by-side with medical providers to assist patients with chronic pain and rehabilitation after injury," said Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, president of Logan University. "The increasing interest in holistic wellness, improved nutrition and non-drug based solutions to pain all coalesce now, creating the perfect scenario for a renaissance in chiropractic." Further proof of the increasing demand for chiropractic care, Logan recently enrolled its largest class of doctor of chiropractic candidates in a decade.

One Logan researcher, Norman Kettner, DC, DACBR, FICC, is widely considered an expert in brain mapping and pain. Dr. Kettner's most recent research published in the journal Brain showed the positive impact acupuncture has on people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Additional evidence supports drug-free approaches to pain treatment, such as a 2017 study in the Journal of American Medical Association which found that spinal manipulation therapy improves pain among patients with acute low back pain.

Logan University donates to Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria had a devastating effect on our neighbors in Puerto Rico. The infrastructure of the island, the cost to rebuild and the lives disrupted will be an ongoing struggle for many months to come. 

Logan was scheduled to attend the 2017 COCSA Convention (Congress of Chiropractic State Associations) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the first week of November. Due to the current situation, we will no longer be attending. Instead, Logan will donate from the anticipated costs to attend to the hurricane relief fundraisers held by both Logan students and St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

Logan will donate $1,000 to the student fundraiser and $1,000 to the fundraiser hosted by the Molina family. Our thoughts are with those affected, and with those who help to provide relief in times of crisis.
