Minster Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Minster back pain and neck pain sufferers is documented to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and reduce the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Minster Chiropractic Center offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Minster Chiropractic Center for good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Minster Chiropractic Center for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  Minster Chiropractic Center also understands that our Minster chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we will keep doing our best at every visit to care for your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC REDUCED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic affected medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Minster Chiropractic Center makes itself accessible to our Minster spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients get escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to experience escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center offers spinal manipulation. Your Minster chiropractor is experienced in delivering safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) versus the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially lessen the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Minster furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
