New Roads Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other New Roads folks? Let’s start with where it is in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at New Roads Chiropractic 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) Did you know that? Not likely as it takes many years for such up-to-date, proven concepts to trickle down to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our New Roads chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when in fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center certainly is the New Roads back pain specialist!

New Roads Chiropractic Center invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our New Roads chiropractic office, particularly the painful cases! For instance, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and escape the need for reoperation. (3) Reports state that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is growing. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a New Roads neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs causing 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 described 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 require surgery, the type of surgery was changed in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at New Roads Chiropractic Center has vast success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. New Roads Chiropractic Center uses a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates 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 report of 674 emergency room adult visits showed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People choosing this form of care were significantly younger and more probable to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more likely to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
