Williamson 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 Williamson 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 clearly accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Apple Country Chiropractic presents 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 Apple Country Chiropractic for good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit faster in providing relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Apple Country Chiropractic for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Apple Country Chiropractic also understands that our Williamson chiropractic patients are excited 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) made sense, 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 keep doing our best at every visit to manage 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 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 expanded 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. Apple Country Chiropractic makes itself accessible to our Williamson spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients go on to escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to undergo escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to 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) Apple Country Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation. Your Williamson chiropractor is skilled in delivering safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are very good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers tend to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies were found to have spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) versus the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our Williamson furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
