Fernandina Beach Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain sufferers is said 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 diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a little quicker in delivering relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  Amelia Chiropractic Clinic also understands that our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients are motivated to receive in-office care but not always as excited to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) made sense, 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 keep doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

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

Researchers wondered 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 likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That’s a lot of money and suffering. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic makes itself accessible to our Fernandina Beach spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients experience escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic delivers spinal manipulation. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are quite good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies were found to experience 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 reduce the probably of young boxers developing spondylosis. (5) Our Fernandina Beach furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
