September 2021 Healthy News from Wilson Family Chiropractic

Access to and research behind Millville chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is key for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE VITAL FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will control spinal manipulation once stated Scott Haldeman DC MD. So true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is performed by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic knows spinal manipulation.  An analysis of chiropractors’ application of SMT following the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method discovered that they appropriately delivered SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an analysis of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a multitude of research areas from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can provide relieving SMT, affordably too, when patients have access to them. A new study of older adult spine pain patients’ reduced access to chiropractic resulted in an increase the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, rate of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an extra cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Luckily in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, knows the proper tests to assess your condition to establish a treatment plan to manage your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your Millville chiropractor to assess low back pain in Millville adults. For instance, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness stands out for its validity in differentiating low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic really are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and proper treatment of Millville back pain and neck pain!

Wilson Family Chiropractic shares how impactful slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

Millville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. How often do you really think to breathe? Not many of us do, but researchers are scrutinizing breathing more in its various modes and for its pain-relieving abilities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing decreased visceral pain intensity. (6) It was found to better reduce pain when it was done slowly with a longer expiration than inspiration. (7) One study suggested pursed-lips breathing and found that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control delivering, especially good for dealing with emotional responses. (8) Fascinating! Your chiropractor most valued the report about breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which prompted researchers to suggest breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) So breathe. You have to anyway, so you might want to pay a tad bit more attention to HOW you breathe to ease your pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Lee Hazen and Cheri Hazen on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as they discuss the inclusion of basic breathing instruction along with spinal manipulation in their use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
