Best to See Your Plymouth Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a common question Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology hears when Plymouth folks talk about chiropractic. Plymouth chiropractic patients are a diverse group. Some Plymouth chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Plymouth 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 Plymouth chiropractic patients discover that making a Plymouth chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule 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. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is grateful for every Plymouth chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Plymouth chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Plymouth chiropractic patient can profit from Plymouth chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology presents a recent project in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most positive 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) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology to really aid our Plymouth back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Plymouth chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed 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 low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Plymouth chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is always ready to help!
