Vancouver Spine Care Centre Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A common question for your Vancouver chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre goes by 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. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Vancouver chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Vancouver chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t produce beneficial results. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for neck and back pain care. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as additional people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may take a few visits to get relief. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study reported that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in 3 months. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain with a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Vancouver Spine Care Centre: educate our Vancouver 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 took a little longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Vancouver Spine Care Centre shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Vancouver chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients want pain management that they know will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Vancouver Spine Care Centre has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought care from so many different providers 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 decreases 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 provides patients realistic expectations.
