Spinal Care Clinic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A familiar question for your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic follows an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research confirms the system and its goals in which Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it did not help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as more people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may take a few visits to get results. Spinal Care Clinic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study reported that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Spinal Care Clinic: educate our Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Spinal Care Clinic shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Burlington and Hamilton chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they know will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Spinal Care Clinic has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have pursued care from a variety of different healthcare professionals that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief drops the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
