Severna Park Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other Severna Park folks? Let’s start with where it is in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Back And Neck Care Center

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) Have you heard that before? Probably not because it requires many years for such new, proven ideas to trickle down to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our Severna Park chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when actually chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center surely is the Severna Park back pain specialist!

Back And Neck Care Center invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Severna Park chiropractic office, especially the painful cases! For example, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and evade the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports assert 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 demand for chiropractic spine care is rising. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum time of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Severna Park neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Back And Neck Care Center is a possibility for pain relief. Another similar study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, 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 proposed 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 need surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Back And Neck Care Center has substantial success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Back And Neck Care Center utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which integrates 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 revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were quite a bit younger and more probable to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were significantly more prone to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
