Oregon Prioritizes Chiropractic, Complementary Therapies Over Painkillers and Surgery

Posted by PHS Chiropractic on Friday, August 21, 2015

Oregon's state health plan has made a bold move to place a priority on chiropractic and other complementary therapies that could lead the way for other states to do the same. 

Patients with back pain will be able to move from invasive (and potentially addictive) therapies such as painkillers and surgery as first-line therapies in favor of more conservative and potentially more effective therapies such as chiropractic, which works to treat the underlying condition causing back pain.
