Malverne Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Malverne back pain and neck pain sufferers is documented to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and lessen the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Malverne Health & Wellness presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Malverne Health & Wellness for good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit faster in providing relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Malverne Health & Wellness for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Malverne Health & Wellness also knows that our Malverne chiropractic patients are eager to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it is tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic affected medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Malverne Health & Wellness makes itself accessible to our Malverne spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients experience escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to experience escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness offers spinal manipulation. Your Malverne chiropractor is skilled in delivering safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers tend to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially lessen the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Malverne furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
