Malverne Health & Wellness Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A familiar question for your Malverne chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Malverne chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Malverne chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for neck and back pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as more people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may take a few visits to obtain results. Malverne Health & Wellness is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study reported that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain at first had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Malverne Health & Wellness: educate our Malverne back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness presents statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Malverne chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients want pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Malverne Health & Wellness has always presented the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have pursued care from a variety of different healthcare professionals that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief decreases the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that provides patients realistic expectations.
