West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost reducing.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Chiropractic Care welcomes all spine pain patients! Spine pain is unwelcome by its sufferers. West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation is beneficial for many. Though low back pain is a major cause of disability around the world, its sufferers who have recurrent or persistent episodes of low back pain realize that chiropractic maintenance care is valuable as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, report benefit with chiropractic. Neck pain patients who undergo spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were found to be 2.38 times less likely to need higher level and costly care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other kinds of care (46%). (2) A recent study of Medicare patient claims states that patients who had reduced access to chiropractic care had a rise in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and a rise in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is well-qualified in performing spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been advised as first-line treatment for low back pain. Reviews of Medicare claims note that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the general supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Have no fear! Your hometown, West Palm Beach chiropractor has no intention of not providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, particularly the gentle, research-supported Cox® Technic style of spinal manipulation.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kurt Olding on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he discusses the role of spinal manipulation in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for the relief of spinal stenosis, a common spine pain condition in the over-65 age set.

Chiropractic Care shares new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

B vitamins are beneficial. B12 deficiency is often associated with dementia in patients over 65 years of age. It has also been seen in younger people who have normal B12 levels but their methylmalonic acid (MMA) level is high. Testing the MMA level may be considered in patients with symptoms that seem unconnected as in one patient with neuropathy, depression and stomach issues who was found to have a high MMA. (5) Biotin (B7) supplementation is demonstrating potential in the treatment of neuropathic pain and could lessen the required doses of analgesic drugs. (6) Riboflavin (B2) in foods and via supplements is renowned for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A new study found that B2 to be anti-itch. (7) Are your B levels good? We’ll talk at your next visit!
