Murfreesboro Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other Murfreesboro folks? Let us look at where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Most Chiropractic Clinic

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) Is that news to you? Likely because it is known to take many years for such innovative, proven ideas to trickle down to common knowledge. Some people (not our Murfreesboro chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic surely is the Murfreesboro back pain specialist!

Most Chiropractic Clinic welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Murfreesboro chiropractic office, particularly the more difficult cases! For instance, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and avoid the need for reoperation. (3) Reports state 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 call for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum time of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Murfreesboro neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study found that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering 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 sound idea. A study of 137 patients proposed to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Most Chiropractic Clinic has considerable success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic utilizes 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 received care from at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People seeking such care were significantly younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more liable to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
