Williamson Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Not likely! Your Williamson chiropractor treats your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Williamson chiropractor and you the Williamson back pain sufferer form a great spine care team. Apple Country Chiropractic is your local Williamson chiropractic care center where Williamson back pain patients meet their Williamson chiropractor to establish a pain relieving treatment plan as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A new high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Apple Country Chiropractic values this confirmation! 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 reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They reinforced the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel inserted two supplementary recommendations 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) Apple Country Chiropractic concurs! Williamson chiropractic patients frequently look for care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they find Williamson chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Apple Country Chiropractic applies is known as Cox Technic. In research studies regarding 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 better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic recognizes that exercise is crucial to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Apple Country Chiropractic urges all our Williamson chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.

Schedule your Williamson chiropractic appointment with Apple Country Chiropractic to discuss Williamson back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Williamson chiropractic care and appropriate Williamson exercise. Your Williamson chiropractor and you will collaborate as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and effectively reduce low back pain.
