SPINAL MANIPULATION: A Beneficial Choice for Relief of Back Pain, Better Quality of
Life, Reduced Risk of Tests and Prescriptions
Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a choice when it
comes to options for managing back pain, a choice
not all back pain sufferers know about but may
want to be. In a review of 83,025 insurance back pain claims,
28% of the patients were treated with
SMT. Of them, 24% underwent SMT initially, 4% delayed using SMT,
and 72% didn’t received SMT at all. Managing initial back pain episodes
with spinal manipulation reduced the risk of imaging studies,
injection procedures, and/or back surgery by nearly 30%
compared with not receiving SMT.
Delayed spinal manipulation treatment also raised the risk for these procedures. (1) A review of older
Medicare chronic low back pain sufferers who received long-term
care with SMT revealed that they had
higher health-related quality of life and satisfaction with care than those who
experienced long-term care with prescription drug therapy.
(2) Older Medicare chronic low back pain patients who initially chose opioid
analgesic therapy experienced a higher rate of adverse drug
events than the patients who chose SMT care. (3) Spinal manipulation is our forte!
Delivering gentle, research-supported spinal manipulation in
the form of gentle, well-researched Cox® Technic is our choice.

Manahawkin CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE
MANAGE OSTEOPOROSIS: Risk, Falls, Care
Osteoporosis-related falls are prevalent
as osteoporosis is one of the most prevalent skeletal diseases. A review of two studies of older men and women with osteoporosis counted
their falls. Overall, falls within 4 months were found to be signs
of higher risk for non-spine and hip fracture in the next year.
In women, a recent fall denoted an 8.1%
absolute risk of non-spine fracture in 12 months, a 2.5 times greater
risk than women who hadn’t fallen, a 2.5%
absolute risk of hip fracture, and a 3.1 times increased fall risk.
(4) Falls aren’t good. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to
help you avert falls and osteoporosis-related fractures. We
can discuss addressing options like nutrition (calcium and vitamin
D supplementation, etc.), gut microbiota balance, and exercise within the Manahawkin
chiropractic treatment plan for managing osteoporosis.
(5,6) Researchers noted that patients understood the benefit
of non-pharmacological management of osteoporosis including exercise,
nutrition, and fall prevention but confessed that they found it difficult incorporating these
approaches into daily life. (6) Is that you? We’re here to help! Let’s discuss osteoporosis and fall
risk at your next visit!
