Chiropractic Care Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A common question for your West Palm Beach chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care follows an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which West Palm Beach chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

West Palm Beach chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as more people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may take a few visits to obtain relief. Chiropractic Care is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic neck and back pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Chiropractic Care: educate our West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a little longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Chiropractic Care shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

West Palm Beach chronic neck and back pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they know will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Chiropractic Care has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought care from a variety of different providers that they “get” it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief drops the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
