Are you ready?

LOW BACK PAIN CHIROPRACTIC CARE: NON-INVASIVE, PAIN RELIEVING

First of all, Moses Chiropractic admits that there are many back pain relief options. In an attempt to determine what options works in taking care of acute and chronic low back pain, researchers reviewed randomized control trials, systematic reviews and well-written clinical guidelines in an attempt to make some sense of all the options: general behavior, pharmacological therapy, psychological therapy, specfic exercise, active rehab and education, manual therapy, physical modalities, and invasive procedures. There are lots of approaches! In the end, manual therapy, spinal manipulation, and massage for acute and chronic low back pain were strongly to marginally recommended, getting A to C scores. Further, spinal  manipulation was  backed by three high-quality trials, one systemic review (SR), plus two clinical guidelines for acute low back pain.  For chronic LBP, four higher quality trials, two SRs, and  four clinical guidelines found evidence to show pain improvement with spinal manipulation. In addition, three  moderate quality trials corroborated pain improvement with chiropractic approaches for treating chronic LBP. Among many other discoveries, this one really stood out though: Of the many clinical trials with many types of invasive treatments, there was insufficient evidence for surgery as a treatment of chronic low back pain. (1) There are times that back surgery is appropriate, and your chiropractor knows the signs and works toegether with spinal surgeons. For many, West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic features non-invasive care of acute and chronic low back pain. A great place to start!

West Palm Beach BACK PAIN: SMT + EXERCISE

A combined effort for back pain relief works. 241 low back pain patients were randomized to three combinations of care: spinal manipulation (SMT) twice weekly for 3 weeks with multifidus activating exercise or spinal mobilizing exercise or additional SMT sessions. Significant differences were found for those patients in the SMT plus multifidus activating exercise group. Low back pain and its management is multi-factorial. This one study was able to document positive effects with SMT plus multifidus strengthening exercises. (2) We will talk about at-home exercise to optimize your relief.

West Palm Beach NECK PAIN: SMT + EXERCISE

What about neck pain? A blended approach works with it as well. Regarding neck pain and upper cervical rotation restriction, patients who received manual therapy and performed cervical exercises at home showed significantly better outcomes in disability, pain, and function. Four 20-minute manual therapy sessions plus exercise and an at-home exercise routine provided evidence of being superior to  exercise alone and a home-exercise program.  Neck disability indices, flexion-rotation tests, pain intensities, and more improved. (3) So do your exercises we recommend! They really do help. Layering treatment with personal care works.
