May 16, 2017

Geriatric back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Not likely! Your Easley chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Easley chiropractor and you the Easley back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Young Chiropractic is your local Easley chiropractic care center where Easley back pain patients meet their Easley chiropractor to set a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A new high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Young Chiropractic 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 guidelinesreview and update. In the end, they agreed on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They strengthened the current statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for older back pain patients. The panel inserted two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should recommend exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization influence general positive outcomes beyond pain reduction. (1) Young Chiropractic concurs! Easley chiropractic patients often seek care to get rid of their back pain. Then, they find Easley chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Young Chiropractic uses is known as Cox Technic. In research studies about this approach, it is known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react 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 – reacts better to exercise. (2) Young Chiropractic knows exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Young Chiropractic urges all our Easley chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
