Best to See Your New York City Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Innate Wisdom responds to when New York City folks talk about chiropractic. New York City chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some New York City chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some New York City chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some New York City chiropractic patients find that making a New York City chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal 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. Innate Wisdom is grateful for every New York City chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this New York City chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a New York City chiropractic patient can gain from New York City chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Innate Wisdom presents a new 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. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Innate Wisdom 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 Innate Wisdom to really aid our New York City back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with New York City chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

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 outcomes for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered 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 New York City chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Innate Wisdom is always ready to help!
