A new high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Minster Chiropractic Center values this verification! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They strengthened the existing statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel inserted two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should recommend exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization contribute to general positive outcomes beyond pain reduction. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center concurs! Minster chiropractic patients often look for care that will reduce their back pain. Then, they discover Minster chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to welcome a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Minster Chiropractic Center applies is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies concerning this approach, it is published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center recognizes that exercise is crucial to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Minster Chiropractic Center urges all our Minster chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
