he Opioid crisis is spiraling out of control but there is something we can do about it!
.
It has been clinically proven time and time again that Physical Therapy is more effective than prescription pain meds (Opioids). And results in better quality of life as it actually fixes the problem rather than masking it.
.
This epidemic knows no age, race, gender, socioeconomic group nor educational level. No one is immune. It starts out as harmless prescription meds to help with some pain but for over 64,000 people in 2016 it ended in death.
.
We need to advocate for our own health and protection. Speak up when your Physician is prescribing meds for pain.
.
Ask for PT, not Pills.
