Access to and research behind Fort Wayne chiropractic’s delivery of spinal manipulation is vital for back and neck pain patients’ pain relief and expenses.

 
CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH AND ACCESS ARE VITAL FOR SPINE PATIENT CARE

The “knowers” will have control of spinal manipulation once said Scott Haldeman DC MD. Quite true! And patients should expect their spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) providers to be such “knowers”! 90% of spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors. (1) Chiropractors know SMT. Your [[targeltocation]] chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows spinal manipulation.  A review of chiropractors’ application of SMT following the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method reported that they appropriately delivered SMT in treating 84% of their chronic low back pain and 86% of their chronic neck pain patients. (2) According to an assessment of published research, research support for chiropractic SMT was cited more than average in a large number of research fields from medicine, veterinary, neurosciences, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, to social sciences. (3) Chiropractors know they can offer relieving SMT, cost effectively too, when patients have access to them. A new study of older adult spine pain patients’ diminished access to chiropractic resulted in an increase the number of visits to primary care physicians for spine pain, rate of spinal surgery, and cost of care (an extra cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries on medical services). (4) Luckily in our area, your chiropractor is available to you, knows the proper tests to evaluate your condition to establish a treatment plan to manage your spine pain. Many tests like manual palpation are available to back pain specialists like your Fort Wayne chiropractor to evaluate low back pain in Fort Wayne adults. For example, the gluteal muscle palpation test for tenderness stands out for its validity in distinguishing between low back pain patients with and without radiculopathy. (5) Chiropractors like yours at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic really are “knowers” who understand the examination, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment of Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain!

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic presents how impactful slow deep breathing is in pain relief. 

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Just Breathe

Just breathe. Do you think about breathing? Not many people do, but researchers are looking into breathing more in its different modes and for its pain-relieving qualities. Compared to uncontrolled breathing patterns, slow deep breathing reduced visceral pain intensity. (6) Such breathing was found to better ease pain when it was done slowly with an extended expiration than inspiration. (7) One study proposed pursed-lips breathing and noticed that it was more calming, pleasant, and sense-of-control producing, especially good for managing emotional responses. (8) Fascinating! Your chiropractor most valued the report about breathing’s effect on chronic neck pain patients’ muscle activity which triggered researchers to advocate breathing as a part of neck pain treatment plans. (9) So breathe. You have to anyway, so maybe just pay a tad bit more attention to HOW you breathe to decrease your pain.
