Manahawkin Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Manahawkin folks? Let us start with where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Manahawkin Chiropractic 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) Have you heard that before? Not likely as it requires many years for such up-to-date, proven concepts to filter to general knowledge. Some people (not our Manahawkin chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when in fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center surely is the Manahawkin back pain specialist!

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Manahawkin chiropractic office, especially the painful cases! For example, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and escape the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports say 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 demand for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Manahawkin neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is an option for pain relief. Another such study found that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, a high rate of adverse effects is stated 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 need surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center has considerable success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center employs a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which integrates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves permitting normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper describing how 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 choosing this form of care were quite a bit younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more apt to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
