Paramus Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Paramus folks? Let us look at where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Did you know that? Probably not as it is known to take many years for such innovative, proven models to filter to general knowledge. Some people (not our Paramus chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when in fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center certainly is the Paramus back pain specialist!

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Paramus chiropractic office, especially the more difficult cases! For instance, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and evade the need for reoperation. (3) Reports state that from 9 to 33% of people receive spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is rising. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum time of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Paramus neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is an option for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is reported in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a worthy idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not need surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has substantial success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center employs a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A study of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had visited at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were significantly younger and more probable to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were significantly more apt to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
