Best to See Your Manchester Chiropractor As Long As You Need

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


Now, just how often a Manchester chiropractic patient can gain from Manchester chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries presents a new study in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most positive outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries to really help our Manchester back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Manchester chiropractic care.


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) resulted in 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 results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Manchester chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is always ready to help!
