Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A conventional question for your Manchester chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that stretches back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Manchester chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Manchester chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it did not produce beneficial results. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain management. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as additional people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to get results. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study reported 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 90 days. Those who reported worse pain at first had 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 attained maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain with a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries: educate our Manchester back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a little longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries presents statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Manchester chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek 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 Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have pursued 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 provides patients realistic expectations.
