Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain sufferers is documented to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Spinal Care Clinic offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Spinal Care Clinic for good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit quicker in delivering relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Spinal Care Clinic for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Spinal Care Clinic also knows that our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients are eager to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it is tough to make time at home, and we will keep doing our best at every visit to care for your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Spinal Care Clinic makes itself accessible to our Burlington and Hamilton spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients receive escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to undergo escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Spinal Care Clinic delivers spinal manipulation. Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies were found to experience spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Burlington and Hamilton furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
