A recent high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Vancouver Spine Care Centre appreciates this verification! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesreview and update. In the end, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They reinforced the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for older back pain patients. The panel inserted two supplementary notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre agrees! Vancouver chiropractic patients often look for care to get rid of their back pain. Then, they discover Vancouver chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to welcome a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Vancouver Spine Care Centre applies is called Cox Technic. From the research studies about this approach, it is known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre recognizes that exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages all our Vancouver chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
