West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach back pain and neck pain sufferers is documented 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 lessen the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Moses Chiropractic 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 Moses Chiropractic with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit quicker in delivering relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Moses Chiropractic for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Moses Chiropractic also knows that our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients are motivated to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually did the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

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

Researchers questioned 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. Moses Chiropractic makes itself accessible to our West Palm Beach spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients get escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to go onto escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Moses Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers have a tendency 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 monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies had 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 successfully lessen the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our West Palm Beach furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
