Best to See Your New Roads Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a common question New Roads Chiropractic Center responds to when New Roads folks talk about chiropractic. New Roads chiropractic patients are a mixed group. Some New Roads chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some New Roads chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some New Roads chiropractic patients find that coming for a New Roads chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule after pain relief is attained benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. New Roads Chiropractic Center is grateful for every New Roads chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this New Roads chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a New Roads chiropractic patient can benefit from New Roads chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. New Roads Chiropractic Center shares a new project in which chronic low back pain patients 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 created 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits New Roads Chiropractic Center to really aid our New Roads back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with New Roads chiropractic care.


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) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. 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 found low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a New Roads chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. New Roads Chiropractic Center is at your service!
