“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A familiar question for your Nashua chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Moriarty Chiropractic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Nashua chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.
Nashua chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was very below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for back and neck pain care. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as additional people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to get results. Moriarty Chiropractic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal 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 reduced with chiropractic care in three months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Moriarty Chiropractic: educate our Nashua back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a little longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Moriarty Chiropractic shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.
REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Nashua chronic back and neck pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Moriarty Chiropractic has always shared the notion 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 providers that they “get” 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 offers patients realistic expectations.
