Access to and research behind West Palm Beach chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is key for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE IMPORTANT FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will have control of spinal manipulation once stated Scott Haldeman DC MD. Quite true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Moses Chiropractic knows spinal manipulation.  An analysis of chiropractors’ application of SMT following the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method reported that chiorpractors appropriately delivered SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an assessment of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a multitude of research areas from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can offer relieving SMT, affordably too, when patients have access to them. A recent study of older adult spine pain patients’ reduced access to chiropractic caused an increase the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, quantity of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Fortunately in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, armed with knowledge of the proper tests to evaluate your condition to set up a treatment plan to handle your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your West Palm Beach chiropractor to evaluate low back pain in West Palm Beach adults. For example, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness stands out for its validity in distinguishing between low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Moses Chiropractic truly are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and proper treatment of West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain!

Moses Chiropractic presents how impactful slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. How often do you really think to breathe? Not many people do, but researchers are studying breathing more in its different modes and for its pain-relieving qualities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing decreased visceral pain intensity. (6) It was found to better reduce pain when it was slow paced with a longer expiration than inspiration. (7) One study suggested pursed-lips breathing and noticed that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control delivering, especially good for dealing with emotional responses. (8) Fascinating! Your chiropractor most appreciated the study of breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which triggered researchers to counsel breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) Just breathe. You have to anyway, so you might want to pay a tad bit more attention to HOW you breathe to enhance your pain relief.
