Johnson Chiropractic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A familiar question for your Richmond chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that stretches back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research confirms the system and its goals in which Richmond chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Richmond chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was very below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain care. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as additional people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to obtain relief. Johnson Chiropractic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Johnson Chiropractic: educate our Richmond back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a little longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Johnson Chiropractic presents statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Richmond chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Johnson Chiropractic has always shared the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have pursued care from a variety of different providers that they “get” it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief drops the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that provides patients realistic expectations.
