Best to See Your West Palm Beach Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Moses Chiropractic hears when West Palm Beach folks talk about chiropractic. West Palm Beach chiropractic patients are a mixed group. Some West Palm Beach chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients find that coming for a West Palm Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Moses Chiropractic is grateful for every West Palm Beach chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this West Palm Beach chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a West Palm Beach chiropractic patient can benefit from West Palm Beach chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Moses Chiropractic presents a new project in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most positive results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Moses Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Moses Chiropractic to really aid our West Palm Beach back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with West Palm Beach chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

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 documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes 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 presents a greater challenge to treat  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.

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Moses Chiropractic is at your service!
