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

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a common question Cross Chiropractic Center gets when Sandy Springs folks talk about chiropractic. Sandy Springs chiropractic patients are a diverse lot. Some Sandy Springs chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Sandy Springs chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Sandy Springs chiropractic patients find that coming for a Sandy Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is attained benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Cross Chiropractic Center is grateful for every Sandy Springs chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Sandy Springs chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Sandy Springs chiropractic patient can benefit from Sandy Springs chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Cross Chiropractic Center presents a recent study in which participants with chronic low back pain 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 produced the most favorable outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center 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 permits Cross Chiropractic Center to really aid our Sandy Springs back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Sandy 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. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific 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 presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. Cross Chiropractic Center is always ready to help!
