Nashua Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

May 16, 2017

Older back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Not likely! Your Nashua chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Nashua chiropractor and you the Nashua back pain sufferer create a great spine care team. Moriarty Chiropractic is your local Nashua chiropractic care center where Nashua back pain patients meet their Nashua chiropractor to form a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A new high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Moriarty Chiropractic appreciates this confirmation! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists participated in this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they approved current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel inserted two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should recommend exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization contribute to general positive outcomes not just for pain reduction. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic concurs! Nashua chiropractic patients often look for care to eliminate their back pain. Then, they find Nashua chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Moriarty Chiropractic employs is known as Cox Technic. In research studies concerning this approach, it’s published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic recognizes that exercise is crucial to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Moriarty Chiropractic encourages all our Nashua chiropractic patients to exercise.
