Access to and research behind Tonawanda chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is key for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE IMPORTANT FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will control spinal manipulation once said Scott Haldeman DC MD. Quite true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows spinal manipulation.  An analysis of chiropractors’ use of SMT following the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method reported that chiorpractors appropriately delivered SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an assessment of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a large number of research areas from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can offer relieving SMT, cost effectively too, when patients have access to them. A new study of older adult spine pain patients’ reduced access to chiropractic resulted in an increase the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, rate of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Fortunately in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, knows the proper tests to evaluate your condition to establish a treatment plan to handle your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your Tonawanda chiropractor to evaluate low back pain in Tonawanda adults. For example, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness is quite reliable in its validity in differentiating low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation truly are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment of Tonawanda back pain and neck pain!

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares how important slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. How often do you really think to breathe? Not many of us do, but researchers are studying breathing more in its different modes and for its pain-relieving qualities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing reduced visceral pain intensity. (6) It was found to better ease pain when it was done slowly with an extended expiration than inspiration. (7) One study suggested pursed-lips breathing and noticed that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control producing, especially good for managing emotional responses. (8) Interesting! Your chiropractor most valued the report about breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which triggered researchers to suggest breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) So breathe. You have to anyway, so you might want to pay a little more attention to HOW you breathe to enhance your pain relief.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Lee Hazen and Cheri Hazen on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as they discuss the incorporation of basic breathing instruction in addition to spinal manipulation in their use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
