New Roads chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost reducing.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

New Roads Chiropractic Center welcomes all spine pain patients! We know the frustration that comes with spine pain. New Roads chiropractic spinal manipulation is beneficial for many. Though low back pain is a major cause of disability globally, its sufferers who experience recurrent or persistent episodes of low back pain realize that chiropractic maintenance care is effective as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, discover relief with chiropractic. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – had lowered risk by 2.38 times to need higher level and costly care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other kinds of care (46%). (2) A new study of Medicare patient claims reports that patients who had less access to chiropractic care had an increase in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and an uptick in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your New Roads chiropractor is well-experienced in performing spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been recommended 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, New Roads chiropractor has no intention of not providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, particularly the gentle, research-backed 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 discusses the role 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.

New Roads Chiropractic Center presents new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

New Roads CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

The benefits of B vitamins is undeniable. B12 deficiency is commonly associated with dementia in patients 65 years old and over. It has also been found in young people who have normal B12 levels but their methylmalonic acid (MMA) level is high. Testing the MMA level may be a useful test 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 necessary 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 recent study reported that B2 offers anti-itch properties. (7) Are your B levels good? We’ll talk at your next visit!
