“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Easley 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 relieve pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Young Chiropractic presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT
Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Young Chiropractic with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit faster in delivering relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Young Chiropractic 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! Young Chiropractic also understands that our Easley chiropractic patients are eager to receive in-office care but not always as motivated to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made 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 did the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to care for your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!
SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC REDUCED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE
Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. 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 suffering. Young Chiropractic makes itself accessible to our Easley spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients experience escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to go onto escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Young Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation. Your Easley chiropractor is skilled in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.
EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
There are chiropractic colleagues who also are quite good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted 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 a year old, 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 getting spondylosis. (5) Our Easley furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
