Sawyer talks non-pharmacologic solutions for pain and Medicare on the Empowered Patient Podcast

Chuck Sawyer, DC went on the Empowered Patient Podcast to discuss pain management strategies amidst the opioid epidemic and to give insight on some of the history of the chiropractic profession and NWHSU today.

Topics include the overuse of narcotics to treat chronic pain, aging into Medicare and the importance of expanding coverage. This short podcast episode is a great starting point for gathering more information on integrative health and insight into Medicare.
