Colorado Springs Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR also understands that our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients are eager to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making their appointments. That’s the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) made sense, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we’ll keep doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That’s a lot of money and pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR makes itself accessible to our Colorado Springs spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients receive escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to undergo escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers spinal manipulation. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers tend to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies were found to have spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) versus the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may successfully lessen the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our Colorado Springs furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
