Fort Wayne Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Fort Wayne folks? Let’s look at where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Is that news to you? Probably as it takes many years for such new, proven models to filter to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our Fort Wayne chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic surely is the Fort Wayne back pain specialist!

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Fort Wayne chiropractic office, especially the painful cases! For instance, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and evade the need for reoperation. (3) Reports assert that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those people see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is growing. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Fort Wayne neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is reported in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were reported for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a worthy idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to need surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic has vast success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves permitting normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A study of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had received care from at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People seeking such care were significantly younger and tended to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Such healthcare consumers were much more apt to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
