Mandeville Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Mandeville folks? Let’s look at where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Mandeville Chiropractic

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 takes many years for such up-to-date, proven models to trickle down to common knowledge. Some people (not our Mandeville chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Mandeville chiropractor at Mandeville Chiropractic certainly is the Mandeville back pain specialist!

Mandeville Chiropractic welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Mandeville chiropractic office, especially the more difficult cases! For example, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and avoid the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports state that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those people see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is rising. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Mandeville neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Mandeville Chiropractic is a possibility for pain relief. Another similar study found that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, a high rate of adverse effects is reported 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 recommended 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 in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Mandeville Chiropractic has vast success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Mandeville Chiropractic utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing 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 showed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were quite a bit younger and more likely to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more liable to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
