Best to See Your Tonawanda Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation gets when Tonawanda folks talk about chiropractic. Tonawanda chiropractic patients are a diverse lot. Some Tonawanda chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Tonawanda chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Tonawanda chiropractic patients find that coming for a Tonawanda chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is grateful for every Tonawanda chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Tonawanda chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Tonawanda chiropractic patient can benefit from Tonawanda chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation shares a recent project in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most promising results for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation to really aid our Tonawanda back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Tonawanda chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found low back and leg pain relief on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Tonawanda chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is always ready to help!
