Best to See Your Mandeville Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a common question Mandeville Chiropractic hears when Mandeville folks talk about chiropractic. Mandeville chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Mandeville chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Mandeville 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 helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Mandeville chiropractic patients find that making a Mandeville chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal schedule after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Mandeville Chiropractic appreciates every Mandeville chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Mandeville chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Mandeville chiropractic patient can profit from Mandeville chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Mandeville Chiropractic presents a recent study in which chronic low back pain patients were treated 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 promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Mandeville Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Mandeville Chiropractic to really help our Mandeville back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Mandeville chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes 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 recorded 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 challenging  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Mandeville chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Mandeville Chiropractic is at your service!
