Malverne chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost reducing.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Malverne Health & Wellness welcomes all spine pain patients! Spine pain is disconcerting for its sufferers. Malverne chiropractic spinal manipulation is beneficial for many. Though low back pain is a major cause of disability globally, its sufferers who experience persistent or recurrent bouts of low back pain report that chiropractic maintenance care is beneficial as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, report benefit with chiropractic. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were found to be 2.38 times less likely to need escalated and more expensive care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other kinds of care (46%). (2) A recent study of Medicare patient claims reveals that patients who had less access to chiropractic care had a rise in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and a rise in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your Malverne chiropractor is well-qualified in performing spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been recommended as first-line treatment for low back pain. Reviews of Medicare claims note that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the overall supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Have no fear! Your hometown, Malverne chiropractor does not intend to stop providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, especially the gentle, research-backed Cox® Technic style of spinal manipulation.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kurt Olding on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he presents research on the role of spinal manipulation in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for the relief of spinal stenosis, a common spine pain condition in the over-65 age set.

Malverne Health & Wellness presents new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

Malverne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

B vitamins are beneficial. B12 deficiency is often associated with dementia in patients 65 years old and over. It’s also been found in young people who have normal B12 levels but have a high methylmalonic acid (MMA) level. Checking the MMA level may be considered in patients with symptoms that seem unconnected as in one patient with neuropathy, depression and stomach issues who was found to have a high MMA. (5) Biotin (B7) supplementation is demonstrating potential in the treatment of neuropathic pain and could reduce the required doses of analgesic drugs. (6) Riboflavin (B2) in foods and via supplements is renowned for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A new study reported that B2 offers anti-itch properties. (7) How are your B levels? We’ll talk at your next visit!
