Sandy Springs Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation and Exercise Relieve Pain

If you experience back pain, you want a quick fix. One treatment. Someone else to cure it. Done. Like most things in life, it’s not that easy. Each of us must take part in our lives and our recoveries. Your Sandy Springs chiropractor has a partnering chiropractic treatment plan that can lead to back pain and/or neck pain relief. Are you ready?

LOW BACK PAIN CHIROPRACTIC CARE: NON-INVASIVE, PAIN RELIEVING

First of all, Cross Chiropractic Center recognizes that there are many back pain relief options. In an attempt to figure out what treatment works in taking care of acute and chronic low back pain, researchers reviewed randomized control trials, systematic reviews and well-written clinical guidelines in an attempt to make some sense of all the options: general behavior, pharmacological therapy, psychological therapy, specfic exercise, active rehab and education, manual therapy, physical modalities, and invasive procedures. There are lots of options! In the end, manual therapy, spinal manipulation, and massage for acute and chronic low back pain were strongly to marginally recommended, getting A to C scores. Further, spinal  manipulation was  backed by three high-quality trials, one systemic review (SR), in addition to a couple clinical guidelines for acute low back pain.  For chronic LBP, four higher quality trials, two SRs, as well as  four clinical guidelines found evidence to support pain improvement with spinal manipulation. Additionally, three  moderate quality trials corroborated pain improvement with chiropractic means for treating chronic LBP. Among many other findings, this one particularly stood out though: Of the numerous clinical trials with a variety of invasive treatments, there was insufficient evidence for surgery as a treatment of chronic low back pain. (1) There are times that back surgery is necessary, and your chiropractor knows the signs and works collaboratively with spinal surgeons. For many, Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center features non-invasive care of acute and chronic low back pain. A great starting place!

Sandy Springs BACK PAIN: SMT + EXERCISE

A combined effort for back pain relief works. 241 low back pain patients were randomized to three combos of care: spinal manipulation (SMT) two times a week for 3 weeks with multifidus activating exercise or spinal mobilizing exercise or more SMT sessions. Significant differences were noted for those patients in the SMT plus multifidus activating exercise group. Low back pain and its management is multi-factorial. This one study was able to show positive effects with SMT plus multifidus strengthening exercises. (2) Let us talk about at-home exercise to boost your relief.

Sandy Springs NECK PAIN: SMT + EXERCISE

What about neck pain? A combined approach works with it also. Regarding neck pain and upper cervical rotation restriction, patients who got manual therapy and performed cervical exercises at home showed significantly better outcomes in disability, pain, and function. Four 20-minute manual therapy sessions plus exercise and an at-home exercise routine proved superior to  just exercise and a home-exercise program.  Neck disability indices, flexion-rotation tests, pain intensities, and more got better. (3) So do your exercises we recommend! They really do make a difference. Layering treatment with personal care works.
