Best to See Your Severna Park Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Back And Neck Care Center hears when Severna Park folks talk about chiropractic. Severna Park chiropractic patients are a diverse group. Some Severna Park chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Severna Park chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Severna Park chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Back And Neck Care Center is grateful for every Severna Park chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Severna Park chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Severna Park chiropractic patient can gain from Severna Park chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Back And Neck Care Center presents a new study in which participants with chronic low back pain received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Back And Neck Care Center 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 allows Back And Neck Care Center to really help our Severna Park back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Severna Park chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.
