Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Burlington and Hamilton folks? Let us start with where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Spinal Care Clinic

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Is that news to you? Probably because it is known to take numerous years for such up-to-date, proven ideas to filter to common knowledge. Some people (not our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when in fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic certainly is the Burlington and Hamilton back pain specialist!

Spinal Care Clinic welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic practice, especially the painful cases! For example, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and evade the need for reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those people see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Burlington and Hamilton neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study found that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is stated in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were reported for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a good idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not need surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Spinal Care Clinic has vast success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Spinal Care Clinic uses a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves permitting normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A study of 674 emergency room adult visits showed that 500 (74.2%) patients had received care from at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People seeking such care were quite a bit younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were significantly more apt to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
