Best to See Your Colorado Springs Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets when Colorado Springs folks talk about chiropractic. Colorado Springs chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Colorado Springs chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Colorado Springs chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Colorado Springs chiropractic patients find that coming for a Colorado Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR appreciates every Colorado Springs chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Colorado Springs chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Colorado Springs chiropractic patient can benefit from Colorado Springs chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents a new study in which chronic low back pain patients were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most favorable outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence lets The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR to really help our Colorado Springs back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Colorado Springs chiropractic care.


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) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. 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 fewer than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is at your service!
