Chiropractic Health Month

WHEREAS, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as one-in-four patients who receive prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain in primary care settings struggle with addiction; and

WHEREAS, every day more than 1,000 people visit the emergency room for misusing prescription opioids, deaths involving opioids have quadrupled since 1999, and the spread of opioid abuse has prompted the White House to announce it will designate the opioid crisis a national emergency; and

WHEREAS, because of this epidemic, the need for noninvasive, drugless approaches to pain management for common musculoskeletal conditions, such as back pain, has increased throughout the world and particularly in the United States; and

WHEREAS, in 2018, the American College of Physicians (ACP) released updated low-back pain treatment guidelines that promote the use of noninvasive, drugless approaches as the first line of defense against back pain, and chiropractors focus on the whole person with a noninvasive, drugless approach to health care and pain management; and

WHEREAS, there is a growing body of research validating the effectiveness of chiropractic services – spinal manipulation in particular – for the treatment of low-back pain, leading many respected health care organizations, such as the ACP, to include chiropractic/spinal manipulation in their guidelines for physicians; and

WHEREAS, Chiropractic Health Month serves as a reminder to all people in Washington that noninvasive, drugless options may lessen or eliminate the need for riskier, potentially-addictive treatments;

Now, Therefore, I, Jay Inslee, Governor of the state of Washington do hereby proclaim the month of October 2018

Chiropractic Health Month

in Washington, and I encourage all people in our state to join me in this special observance.
