Best to See Your Fernandina Beach Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Amelia Chiropractic Clinic responds to when Fernandina Beach folks talk about chiropractic. Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients are a assorted lot. Some Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Fernandina Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is grateful for every Fernandina Beach chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Fernandina Beach chiropractic practice.


Now, just how frequently a Fernandina Beach chiropractic patient can profit from Fernandina Beach chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares a new study in which chronic low back pain patients were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most positive outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence lets Amelia Chiropractic Clinic to really aid our Fernandina Beach back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Fernandina Beach chiropractic care.


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) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.
