The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress® (F4CP) recently released Chiropractic: A Key to America’s Opioid Exit Strategy,” a follow-up to Chiropractic: A Safer Strategy Than Opioids,” which further documents the value of non-pharmacologic care as the first-line option to safely and effectively address acute, subacute and chronic neck, low back and neuro-musculoskeletal pain. 

 

The paper issues several calls to action: health care payers to provide patients with physician referrals to doctors of chiropractic (DCs) rather than prescribing opioids; benefit coverage and reimbursement for chiropractic care by government and commercial payers and reimbursement to DCs as participating providers; increased access to chiropractic care for active military and veteran populations, with chiropractic care expanded in the Department of Defense and veterans’ health care systems.
