Best to See Your Tarrytown Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Tarrytown Chiropractic hears when Tarrytown folks talk about chiropractic. Tarrytown chiropractic patients are a mixed lot. Some Tarrytown chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Tarrytown chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Tarrytown chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Tarrytown chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is attained benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Tarrytown Chiropractic is grateful for every Tarrytown chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Tarrytown chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Tarrytown chiropractic patient can gain from Tarrytown chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Tarrytown Chiropractic shares a recent project in which chronic low back pain patients were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most positive results for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Tarrytown Chiropractic to really help our Tarrytown back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Tarrytown chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying condition of spinal pain, a Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan can be coordinated for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Tarrytown Chiropractic is at your service!
