Plainville Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Plainville back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and lessen the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Layden Chiropractic offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Layden Chiropractic with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a little quicker in providing relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Layden Chiropractic for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Layden Chiropractic also knows that our Plainville chiropractic patients are eager 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 is 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 is tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

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

Researchers questioned 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, reduced access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That’s a lot of money and pain. Layden Chiropractic makes itself accessible to our Plainville spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients get escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to undergo escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Layden Chiropractic offers spinal manipulation. Your Plainville chiropractor is experienced in delivering 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 tend to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies had 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 beneficially lessen the probably of young boxers developing spondylosis. (5) Our Plainville furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
