Best to See Your Manahawkin Chiropractor As Long As You Need

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


Now, just how frequently a Manahawkin chiropractic patient can gain from Manahawkin chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center shares a recent study in which participants with chronic low back pain received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most promising 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence lets Manahawkin Chiropractic Center to really help our Manahawkin back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Manahawkin chiropractic care.


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) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. 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 becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.
