Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker talks about his mission to educate and help relieve pain through an integrative approach without the use of opioids and shows the results of research that concludes prescribers, pharmacists and drug companies have allowed opioids to “fall in the hands of inappropriate patients.”
ROCKVILLE, MD. March 29, 2019: Dr. John Rosa, dynamic speaker, national opioid crisis expert, and co-author of The Recipe for Success with Jack Canfield, posted a new article on his website entitled, “Decrease Pain, Increase Mobility, Limit Opioid Medications,” in which Dr. Rosa talks about the holistic approach he uses and teaches.
Dr. Rosa writes, “The title of this article is the holistic strategy used with patients who come to my chiropractic centers in pain.” He continues, “My goal is to educate patients, caregivers and anyone else who is interested, how to manage pain without the use of opioid medications.”
“I recently placed myself into a busy Primary Care medical practice,” says Dr. Rosa, “where we have been able to reduce opioid prescriptions by 70% through the integration of Chiropractic, physical therapy and behavioral medicine.” He continues elaborating, “Some of the therapies and behavioral approaches include yoga, Acupuncture, massage, mindfulness and meditation, among others. This highly successful integrative approach clearly illustrates that we, as a society, do not need to be drug dependent to be pain-free.”
As Dr. Rosa points out, “Without question many people live with chronic, oftentimes debilitating pain. As a result of attempting to relieve this pain,” he states, “the pharmaceutical industry has created highly addictive medications. The medications do relieve the physical pain, but more often than not they lead to more severely painful problems such as addiction and death. And, importantly, they inhibit the body’s own healing wisdom.”
Dr. Rosa writes that, “integrative pain management is a process that requires more effort than merely popping a pill. However, long-term, this method allows the natural healing process of the body to work its wonders. The body’s ability to heal itself is nothing short of miraculous, but we have to give it the time it needs.”
