Malverne Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other Malverne folks? Let’s start with where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Malverne Health & Wellness

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 because it takes numerous years for such new, proven concepts to trickle down to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our Malverne chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when in fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness surely is the Malverne back pain specialist!

Malverne Health & Wellness invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Malverne chiropractic practice, especially the painful cases! For instance, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and evade the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do get spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Malverne neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness is a possibility for pain relief. Another similar study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. Further, 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 worthy 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 in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Malverne Health & Wellness has vast success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Malverne Health & Wellness uses a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing 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 significantly younger and tended to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more liable to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
