Touch is Part of Malverne Health & Wellnesss Relieving Back Pain Care

For all the discussion of artificial intelligence and the future of robots and computers in our lives, the benefit of human touch cannot be replaced. Chiropractic is a hands-on profession. Malverne Health & Wellness offers hands-on Malverne chiropractic care. Chiropractic has an extensive history of valuable manual manipulation and treatment for back pain, neck pain and related extremity pain. Touch cannot be ignored in its contribution to healing and isn’t ignored by your Malverne chiropractor as your pain-relieving treatment plan is implemented starting with day one’s exam and extending through the entire treatment process.

TOUCH IN THE DOCTOR PATIENT REALM

Touch in the doctor-patient relationship is important. A new study states that touch can produce neuromodulatory effects to ease pain and ease patient anxiety about the pain. Researchers reported that the effect of touch starts with the confident handshake and continues through the physical examination, particularly when the physician conducting the exam touches the spot the patient explains is painful. This confirms to the patient that the doctor understands the patient’s pain. Touch also influences treatment for manual and manipulative treating physicians. (1) The impact of touch can’t be denied. Your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes that this is true and witnesses its effect every day and is pleased to see its importance presented in the medical literature for manual therapy’s beneficial role in the health care system for conditions like Malverne back pain, neck pain, arm pain, and sciatic leg pain.

EFFECT OF TOUCH

A researcher remarked on an influential study’s outcomes regarding the effect of spinal manipulation and exercise for back pain relief: “the data are compatible with a non-specific effect caused by touch.” (2) Science tries to quantify just how human touch affects back pain relief. Until that is done, chiropractic physicians like your Malverne chiropractor will welcome the effect of touch as they provide spinal manipulation with their hands.

Malverne CHIROPRACTIC TOUCH

Chiropractors depend on their sense of touch in delivering the appropriate forces to the spine, forces that provide pain relief for the back pain and neck pain patient. Experience really refines the appropriate force application. Today, though, technology may be helpful with this as force-feedback systems are assisting doctors acquire that key experience. With the chiropractic technique system utilized at Malverne Health & Wellness, research has reported just what those appropriate, pain-relieving forces are. (3,4) Force-measuring equipment has been created and incorporated into teaching and daily-use chiropractic tables. (As a bonus, in doing the research study to test forces with patients, no serious adverse effects were produced. “First, do no harm.”)  (5,6) The Cox® Technic flexion distraction procedures used at Malverne Health & Wellness are documented, gentle, and effective for easing pain and dropping intradiscal pressures (7,8). That is a chiropractic treatment outcome arrangement our Malverne chiropractic patients seek.
