Chicago Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Of course not! Your Chicago chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Chicago chiropractor and you the Chicago back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Chiropractic Care is your local Chicago chiropractic care center where Chicago back pain patients meet their Chicago chiropractor to design a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A new high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Chiropractic Care values this confirmation! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they agreed on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for older back pain patients. The panel added two supplementary recommendations that (1) chiropractors should recommend exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Chiropractic Care agrees! Chicago chiropractic patients often look for care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they find Chicago chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Chiropractic Care applies is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies concerning this approach, it is published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Chiropractic Care recognizes that exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Chiropractic Care encourages all our Chicago chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
