Cross Chiropractic Center Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A conventional question for your Sandy Springs chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center follows an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Sandy Springs chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Sandy Springs chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. 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 number! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for neck and back pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may take a few visits to get results. Cross Chiropractic Center is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic neck and back pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Cross Chiropractic Center: educate our Sandy 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 did take a little longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Cross Chiropractic Center presents statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Sandy Springs chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Cross Chiropractic Center has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back 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 offers patients realistic expectations.
