Minster Chiropractic Center Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A familiar question for your Minster chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research bears out the system and its goals in which Minster chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Minster chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it did not produce beneficial results. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was very lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain care. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is expanding as additional people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to get relief. Minster Chiropractic Center is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent 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 three months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for 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 quite possibly managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Minster Chiropractic Center: educate our Minster back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Minster chronic neck and back pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients want pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Minster Chiropractic Center has always presented the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck 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 reduces 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 provides patients realistic expectations.
