Best to See Your Malverne Chiropractor As Long As You Need

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


Now, just how often a Malverne chiropractic patient can benefit from Malverne chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Malverne Health & Wellness presents a recent project in which participants with chronic low back pain 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. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness 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 allows Malverne Health & Wellness to really help our Malverne back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Malverne chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes varies often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 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 varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Malverne chiropractic treatment plan can be planned for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Malverne Health & Wellness is at your service!
