Manchester 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 Manchester back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and diminish 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!) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries also understands that our Manchester chiropractic patients are motivated to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients told researcher they went to 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 followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we’ll continue doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC REDUCED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. 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 equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries makes itself accessible to our Manchester spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients receive 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 experience escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are quite good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers tend to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One 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 acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Manchester furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
