West Palm Beach Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain sufferers is said to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Chiropractic Care offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Chiropractic Care with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit quicker in delivering relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Chiropractic Care for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  Chiropractic Care also knows that our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as excited to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients told researcher they went to their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually did the at-home care. (2) We know it is tough to make time at home, and we will keep doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic influenced medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Chiropractic Care makes itself accessible to our West Palm Beach spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients go on to escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to require escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Chiropractic Care offers spinal manipulation. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies were found to experience spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may successfully reduce the probably of young boxers developing spondylosis. (5) Our West Palm Beach furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
