Palmer Chiropractic Center Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A common question for your Lynchburg chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Lynchburg chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Lynchburg chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians used chiropractic. Though it was very lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for neck and back pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may require a few visits to get results. Palmer Chiropractic Center is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new 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 3 months. Those who reported worse pain initially had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were getting better 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 Palmer Chiropractic Center: educate our Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a little longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Palmer Chiropractic Center shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Lynchburg chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Palmer Chiropractic Center has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have pursued care from so many different healthcare professionals that they “get” 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 decreases 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.
