Best to See Your Minster Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Minster Chiropractic Center hears when Minster folks talk about chiropractic. Minster chiropractic patients are a diverse lot. Some Minster chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Minster chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Minster chiropractic patients discover that making a Minster 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. Minster Chiropractic Center is grateful for every Minster chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Minster chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Minster chiropractic patient can benefit from Minster chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Minster Chiropractic Center presents a new study in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Minster 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 lets Minster Chiropractic Center to really help our Minster back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Minster chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates 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. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For particular 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 is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.
