Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A common question for your Fernandina Beach chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was very below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for back and neck pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to get results. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic: educate our Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Fernandina Beach chronic back and neck pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they understand will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought care from a variety of different healthcare professionals that they “get” it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief drops the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
