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!
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.
