Best to See Your Millville Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Wilson Family Chiropractic gets when Millville folks talk about chiropractic. Millville chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Millville chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Millville chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Millville chiropractic patients discover that making a Millville chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Wilson Family Chiropractic is grateful for every Millville chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Millville chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Millville chiropractic patient can benefit from Millville chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic shares a recent project in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Wilson Family Chiropractic to really help our Millville back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Millville chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Millville chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Wilson Family Chiropractic is always ready to help!
