Best to See Your Williamson Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question Apple Country Chiropractic hears when Williamson folks talk about chiropractic. Williamson chiropractic patients are a mixed group. Some Williamson chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Williamson chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Williamson chiropractic patients find that making a Williamson chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal schedule after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Apple Country Chiropractic appreciates every Williamson chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Williamson chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Williamson chiropractic patient can gain from Williamson chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Apple Country Chiropractic presents a recent study in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Apple Country Chiropractic to really aid our Williamson back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Williamson chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Williamson chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Apple Country Chiropractic is at your service!
