Manahawkin Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Manahawkin back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a little faster in delivering relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Manahawkin Chiropractic Center also understands that our Manahawkin chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) made sense, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it is tough to make time at home, and we’ll continue doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic affected medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center makes itself accessible to our Manahawkin spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients go on to escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to require escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center offers spinal manipulation. Your Manahawkin chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some dog breeds like boxers tend to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) versus the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may successfully reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Manahawkin furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
