The Pain Pill Issue is Out of Control
Chiropractic is the only hope
Desperate for options, administrators at Myrtle Hilliard contacted Logan University chiropractic college, and a unique partnership formed to provide chiropractic care at little or no cost to patients.
After one year, the care has been so successful it inspired another system of subsidized health clinics — Family Care Health Centers in south St. Louis — to start a similar collaboration with Logan.
At Myrtle Hilliard, patients are lining up in droves for the chiropractic services and reporting promising results, said chief executive officer Angela Clabon. Initial data after the first year shows that 80 percent of patients receiving the care decreased their reliance on pain medications.
