Millville Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Millville folks? Let’s start with where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Wilson Family 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? Likely as it is known to take many years for such up-to-date, proven ideas to filter to common knowledge. Some people (not our Millville chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic surely is the Millville back pain specialist!

Wilson Family Chiropractic welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Millville chiropractic practice, especially the painful cases! For instance, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and avoid the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports state that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand 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 does such a Millville neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic is an option for pain relief. Another such study found that no conclusion is known 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 reported in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were reported for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a good idea. A study of 137 patients recommended 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 Wilson Family Chiropractic has considerable success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Wilson Family 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 reporting 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 showed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were quite a bit younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were significantly more liable to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
