 Nashua back pain patients’ roads to recovery depend on pain reducing treatment, self-care, and positive mindset.


A positive mindset, sound self-care, and pain-reducing treatment is a beneficial mix for spine pain relief. Chiropractic mixes them all! A study that followed 740 chronic low back pain patients for a year documented that those who maintained their pain relief and described an improved quality of life were also highly certain that they could still perform activities regardless of their pain. Those who had widespread pain and imagined their pain as horrible and from which they would not get over decreased their recovery outcome. Understanding these issues, researchers and your Nashua chiropractor get that realistic expectations must be reviewed and understood for optimal, satisfactory clinical outcomes. (1) (For example, 50% relief is good!) Complicating factors like difficult sleep, fatigue, pain, anxiety, depression may come into play for back pain and neck pain sufferers and must be managed. We listen thoroughly to and have discussions with our chiropractic patients to manage issues as we move toward pain relief and a better quality of life. We follow and share the 50% Rule of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management that sets reasonable expectations for chiropractic pain relief: 50% relief within a month or so of care without any signs of progressive neurological deficits or other red flags is constructive improvement. Additional good news emanates from a scoping review of papers about spine-pain related factors that mentioned how many issues are modifiable: smoking, overweight/obesity, negative expectations of recovery, work environment, nutrition, etc. (2) That is where we act together to keep you positive and confident and come up with a solid Nashua chiropractic treatment plan for your pain relief!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Robert Patterson on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes what realistic expectations are for back pain patients with the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Moriarty Chiropractic recognizes inflammation’s role in pain and presents how it may be a link between otitis media ear infection and increased hip fracture risk. Interesting research! 


Look to Inflammation: An Ear Infection/Hearing Loss/Hip Fracture Risk Link

A new study evaluated those with chronic otitis media to those without. Researchers questioned if chronic otitis media inflammation impacted the body beyond hearing. They discovered that those with chronic otitis media who had a history of hearing loss are more susceptible to a greater risk of hip fracture. (3) Another study stated that chronic otitis media was found to be significantly linked to a higher risk of developing ‘sudden sensorineural hearing loss’ that comes on rapidly over a 3 day period. This is commonly associated with dizziness and ringing in the ears, treated with antibiotics, and accommodated for with hearing aids or devices for any enduring hearing loss. (4,5) We realize inflammation is an enemy when managing Nashua back pain and neck pain, and it is seemingly an enemy of ear pain and heightened hip fracture risk, too! Manage hearing issues and inflammation as they develop. We are here to help with chiropractic services! Moriarty Chiropractic and you make a great team.
