Best to See Your Paramus Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center responds to when Paramus folks talk about chiropractic. Paramus chiropractic patients are a assorted lot. Some Paramus chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Paramus chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Paramus chiropractic patients find that coming for a Paramus chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center appreciates every Paramus chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Paramus chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Paramus chiropractic patient can profit from Paramus chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center shares a new study in which chronic low back pain patients received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center to really help our Paramus back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Paramus chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes varies often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.
