Tonawanda Back Pain Option: Control It

Control not cure. That’s a difficult notion to take on when you are in pain. Then again, for many back pain and neck pain patients, any relief is acceptable. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation treats many Tonawanda back pain and Tonawanda neck pain patients who suffer with chronic pain. Luckily, spine pain patients who decide on chiropractic care with realistic goals often get relief.


When patients visit doctors, they generally seek a “fix”. They want to be “cured” from their illness be it a cold or a headache or an infection even their back pain or neck pain. Researchers wrote that medicine and healthcare mostly follow the “curative” model of care. For some conditions, management or control of the condition develops into the goal of care. Back and neck pain patients who come to the realization that their condition is theirs for life and that there is help for containing that pain via on-going chiropractic care turn into appreciative patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees them daily. The healthcare “curative” model may not transform any time soon, but the patients’ healthcare options do. Recently, researchers studied back pain patients seeking care from chiropractors. Of 1614 chronic back and neck pain patients, less than 1/3rd of them had a goal of a permanent end to their pain. These patients had pain for a shorter time and sought a medical cure. The rest of the patients looked for on-going care to prevent the pain from returning, prevent it from getting worse, and attain temporary relief of their pain. These patients had lower pain levels for a longer time. (1) Patients’ hopes have an effect on their pain relief.


It is no secret that low back pain is an expensive healthcare challenge regarding finances as well as quality of life. Back pain sufferers who have a high expectation of improvement experience a 58% higher chance of reporting improvement at the fourth chiropractic appointment. Your Tonawanda chiropractor knows the significance of our back pain patients’ hopes and expectations. These hopes foretell short-term outcomes more effectively than pain intensity, self-rated health status or psychological status. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation describes expectations that will enhance patients’ quality of life.


50% relief is a quality of life improvement! The 50% Rule with The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management relays realistic expectations to spine pain sufferers at the start of care. Many Tonawanda back pain patients who come to Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and have dealt with their pain for some time already are delighted at the prospect of 10% or 20% or 50% or more. They just desire some trace of their pre-pain life back even if it is walking to the mailbox or going to the grocery store. Cox® Technic aims for 50% relief of pain within 30 days of care with patient cooperation on appointments and at-home suggestions of exercise and/or nutrition. The 50% Rule also ensures both the back pain sufferer and the physician that the “next thing” to do if relief is not achieved will be managed. Our patients can count on Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to take care of them.
