Apple Country Chiropractic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A familiar question for your Williamson chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Williamson chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Williamson chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it did not help. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for neck and back pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as additional people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may take a few visits to get results. Apple Country Chiropractic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in three months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Apple Country Chiropractic: educate our Williamson back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic presents statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Williamson chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Apple Country Chiropractic has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have looked for care from so many different healthcare professionals that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief reduces the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
