Sandy Springs Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Sandy 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 easily accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Cross Chiropractic Center offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Cross Chiropractic Center with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit faster in delivering relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Cross Chiropractic Center 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!  Cross Chiropractic Center also understands that our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients are eager to receive in-office care but not always as excited to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients told researcher they went to their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually did the at-home care. (2) We know it is tough to make time at home, and we will keep doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

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

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic influenced medically-directed spinal pain care in older adults. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care expanded 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 suffering. Cross Chiropractic Center makes itself accessible to our Sandy Springs spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients experience 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 go onto escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center delivers spinal manipulation. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor is skilled in delivering 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 develop 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) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may successfully reduce the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our Sandy Springs furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
