Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost effective.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Back And Neck Care Center welcomes all spine pain patients! Spine pain is unwelcome by its sufferers. Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation is beneficial for many. Though low back pain is a major source of disability globally, its sufferers who have recurrent or persistent episodes of low back pain realize that chiropractic maintenance care is beneficial as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, find help with chiropractic. Neck pain patients who undergo spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – had lowered risk by 2.38 times to need escalated and more expensive care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other kinds of care (46%). (2) A recent study of Medicare patient claims states that patients who had reduced access to chiropractic care had an increase in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and a rise in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your Severna Park chiropractor is well-experienced in performing spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been advised as first-line treatment for low back pain. Medicare claims’ reviews point out that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the overall supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Have no fear! Your hometown, Severna Park chiropractor has no intention of not providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, especially the gentle, research-supported Cox® Technic style of spinal manipulation.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kurt Olding on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he presents research on the place of spinal manipulation in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for the relief of spinal stenosis, a common spine pain condition in the over-65 age set.

Back And Neck Care Center presents new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

The benefits of B vitamins is undeniable. B12 deficiency is often associated with dementia in patients 65 years old and over. It’s also been seen in young people who have normal B12 levels but have a high methylmalonic acid (MMA) level. Checking the MMA level may be considered in patients with symptoms that seem unrelated as in one patient with neuropathy, depression and stomach issues who tested a high level of MMA. (5) Biotin (B7) supplementation is demonstrating potential in the treatment of neuropathic pain and could reduce the required doses of analgesic drugs. (6) Riboflavin (B2) in foods and via supplements is renowned for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A new study found that B2 to be anti-itch. (7) How are your B levels? We’ll talk at your next visit!
