September 2021 Healthy News from Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center

Access to and research behind Paramus chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is vital for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE VITAL FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will control spinal manipulation once said Scott Haldeman DC MD. Quite true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is performed by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows spinal manipulation.  An analysis of their application of SMT following the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method reported that chiorpractors appropriately delivered SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an assessment of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a large number of research fields from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can offer relieving SMT, affordably too, when patients have access to them. A new study of older adult spine pain patients’ diminished access to chiropractic caused an increase the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, quantity of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an extra cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Fortunately in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, armed with knowledge of the proper tests to assess your condition to establish a treatment plan to manage your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your Paramus chiropractor to assess low back pain in Paramus adults. For instance, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness stands out for its validity in distinguishing between low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center truly are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment of Paramus back pain and neck pain!

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares how important slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. How often do you really think to breathe? Not many of us do, but researchers are studying breathing more in its different modes and for its pain-relieving qualities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing decreased visceral pain intensity. (6) It was found to better reduce pain when it was slow paced with an extended expiration than inspiration. (7) One study proposed pursed-lips breathing and noticed that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control producing, particularly good for managing emotional responses. (8) Fascinating! Your chiropractor most valued the study of breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which prompted researchers to suggest breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) Just breathe. You have to anyway, so you might want to pay a little more attention to HOW you breathe to enhance your pain relief.
