Pensacola 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 Pensacola 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 clearly accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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 little faster in delivering relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center also understands that our Pensacola chiropractic patients are motivated to receive in-office care but not always as motivated to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making 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’ll continue doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

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

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center makes itself accessible to our Pensacola spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients get escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is performed by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to go onto escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers spinal manipulation. Your Pensacola chiropractor is skilled in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are quite good at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers tend to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies were found to experience spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may successfully reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Pensacola furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
