About Drug-Free Pain Management Awareness Month

Prescription opioid use and abuse that leads to addiction and catastrophic outcomes has become a national crisis.

Unfortunately, Rx painkillers are often recommended for low back, neck and musculoskeletal pain management. During Drug-Free Pain Management Month, the Foundation for Chiropractic Education advises the public that there are non-pharmacologic options such as chiropractic care to safely and effectively address many patients’ spine and joint-related pain.

Online guides and toolkits provide education and materials to plan and promote consumer awareness activities.
