SPINAL MANIPULATION: A Beneficial Choice for Relief of Back Pain, Better Quality of
Life, Reduced Risk of Tests and Prescriptions
Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a choice for treatment of back pain, a choice
not all back pain patients are aware of but may
want to be. In an analysis of 83,025 insurance back pain claims,
28% of the claimants underwent treatment with
SMT. Of them, 24% underwent SMT initially, 4% delayed using SMT,
and 72% didn’t received SMT at all. Caring
for initial back pain episodes
with spinal manipulation reduced the risk of imaging studies,
injection procedures, and/or back surgery by close to 30%
compared with not receiving SMT.
Delayed SMT also resulted in
higher risk for these procedures. (1) A review of older
Medicare chronic low back pain sufferers who underwent long-term
care with SMT revealed that they described having
higher health-related quality of life and satisfaction with care than those who
experienced long-term care with prescription drug therapy.
(2) Older Medicare chronic low back pain patients who initially chose opioid
analgesic therapy reported a higher rate of adverse drug
events than the patients who chose SMT care. (3) Spinal manipulation is our forte!
Delivering gentle, research-documented spinal manipulation in
the form of gentle, well-researched Cox® Technic is our choice.

with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management mixed with a discussion of the
past influences on the present delivery and plan for the future
direction of research and delivery of SMT.
Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE
MANAGE OSTEOPOROSIS: Risk, Falls, Care
Osteoporosis-related falls are prevalent
as osteoporosis is one of the most prevalent skeletal diseases. A review of two studies of older men and women with osteoporosis tracked
their falls. Overall, falls within 4 months were documented to be signs
of higher risk for non-spine and hip fracture in the next 12 months.
In women, a recent fall indicated an 8.1%
absolute risk of non-spine fracture in a year, a 2.5 times greater
risk than women who had not had falls, a 2.5%
absolute risk of hip fracture, and a 3.1 times higher fall risk.
(4) Falls are bad. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is ready to
help you avert falls and osteoporosis-related fractures. We
can discuss addressing options like nutrition (calcium and vitamin
D supplementation, etc.), gut microbiota balance, and exercise within the Tonawanda
chiropractic treatment plan for osteoporosis management.
(5,6) Researchers observed that patients understood the benefit
of non-pharmacological management of osteoporosis including exercise,
nutrition, and fall prevention but confessed that they had a
hard time incorporating these
approaches into everyday life. (6) Is that you? Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
