Plainville Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other Plainville folks? Let us start with where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Layden Chiropractic

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Is that news to you? Probably as it is known to take many years for such up-to-date, proven concepts to trickle down to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our Plainville chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic certainly is the Plainville back pain specialist!

Layden Chiropractic invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Plainville chiropractic practice, particularly the painful cases! For example, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and avoid the need for reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people receive spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is rising. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum duration of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Plainville neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic is an option for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, a high rate of adverse effects is stated in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a worthy idea. A study of 137 patients proposed to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not need surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to need surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Layden Chiropractic has considerable success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Layden Chiropractic utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves permitting normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper describing how flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A study of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had visited at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were significantly younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more liable to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
