The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A conventional question for your Colorado Springs chiropractor. Chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR goes by 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 Colorado Springs chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Colorado Springs chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t produce beneficial results. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain management. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding 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 get results. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study reported 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 three months. 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 with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR: educate our Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Colorado Springs chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has always shared the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have looked for care from so many different healthcare professionals that they understand 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 reduces 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.
