Conference Description:
The overuse of opioids for the treatment of low back pain in the U.S. is associated with an increased risk of adverse drug events (ADEs). Among patients with low back pain, the speaker compares recipients and nonrecipients of chiropractic services with regard to the likelihood of using high-risk drugs and the risk of ADEs. Nonpharmacological chiropractic care of low back pain is associated with lower use of high-risk drugs and reduced risk of ADEs. The research results are presented, with a discussion of the implications for clinical practice, health policy, and future research, and with time allowed for questions and answers.

Conference Objectives:
• Explain the relation between the utilization of chiropractic services and the use of high-risk drugs.
• Review the association among the utilization of chiropractic services and the use of opioid analgesics.
• Evaluate the association between the utilization of chiropractic services and the risk of adverse drug events.
