Best to See Your West Palm Beach Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Chiropractic Care responds to when West Palm Beach folks talk about chiropractic. West Palm Beach chiropractic patients are a mixed lot. Some West Palm Beach chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some West Palm Beach chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some West Palm Beach chiropractic patients discover that making a West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Chiropractic Care appreciates every West Palm Beach chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this West Palm Beach chiropractic practice.


Now, just how frequently a West Palm Beach chiropractic patient can gain from West Palm Beach chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Chiropractic Care presents a new project in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most promising results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Chiropractic Care uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Chiropractic Care to really aid our West Palm Beach back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with West Palm Beach chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan can be planned for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Chiropractic Care is always ready to help!
