HOUSTON, TX, October 01, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the country celebrates National Chiropractic Health Month this October, renowned Houston Chiropractor, Dr. Gregory Johnson, founder of Advanced Chiropractic Relief in Houston, Texas, offers free chiropractic examination for the month of October as he joins the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) in celebrating the annual National Chiropractic Health Month. This year's theme is #PainFreeNation and activities will focus on how chiropractic's natural and non-drug approach to pain relief can help patients overcome pain and deter misuse, abuse or overuse of prescription painkillers or opioid medications.
A report titled "2013 Drug Overdose Mortality Data" released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that there were about 16,235 deaths involving prescription opioid in 2013, an increase of 1 percent from 2012. The study further revealed that drug overdose deaths in 2013 hit 43,982, an alarming six percent rise from 2012. The abuse of prescription pain medications in America has become an "epidemic."
Another survey by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) cited that an estimated 6.2 million Americans, or 2.6 percent of adults in America, abuse prescription drugs. Out of that number, about 4.4 million of them abuse pain relievers by taking more than the prescribed dosage. Patients who do not follow their prescriptions are at high risk of being addicted. The rate of full-blown addiction is about 0.3 percent. The rate of prescription drug abuse has risen dramatically for over the last decade. About 2.4 million Americans began misusing prescription pain relievers in 2001, almost quadrupling from 628,000 in 1990, the survey revealed.
As America grapples with increasing rate of over-reliance on prescription painkillers, which only temporarily addresses the pain, but do not cure the symptoms and with opioid-related deaths alarmingly rising, Dr. Johnson is doing his part to educate his patients and online followers on the numerous holistic benefits of chiropractic care, as well as highlighting the potential dangers of using prescription painkillers for chronic pain, back pain, neck pain and other painful spine or musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Johnson has been raising awareness regarding the benefits of chiropractic care as one of the safest, drug-free, all natural and non-surgical treatment available that has helped provide pain relief to millions of patients suffering from various painful and debilitating conditions such as back pain, neck pain, herniated disc, chronic pain, migraine headaches, sciatica, as well as car accident injuries and sports injuries.
Increase Awareness of the Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
From October 1 to 31, Dr. Johnson is offering complimentary chiropractic examination to help patients and the community take the first step in managing their pain and health with a non-drug and holistic alternative.
"With the country's increasing dependence on prescription painkillers, I feel it is important to raise awareness and educate our communities about chiropractic care's all-natural and outstanding pain relief and health benefits," said Dr. Johnson, the go-to chiropractor for hiatal hernia and back pain in Houston, Texas. "To celebrate October's National Chiropractic Health Month, our free chiropractic exam offers individuals the opportunity to discover chiropractic care as one of the most effective and safest forms of health care to treat pain, manage overall health and promote well-being."
