Tarrytown Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Tarrytown folks? Let us look at where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Tarrytown Chiropractic

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) Did you know that? Probably not because it takes many years for such up-to-date, proven concepts to trickle down to general knowledge. There are even people who (not our Tarrytown chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Tarrytown chiropractor at Tarrytown Chiropractic surely is the Tarrytown back pain specialist!

Tarrytown Chiropractic invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Tarrytown chiropractic practice, especially the painful cases! For instance, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and evade the need for reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum time of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What can such a Tarrytown neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Tarrytown Chiropractic is a possibility for pain relief. Another similar study found that no conclusion is known as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering the condition termed stenosis. To top it off, a high rate of adverse effects is stated in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described 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 require surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Tarrytown Chiropractic has considerable success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Tarrytown Chiropractic utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which integrates 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 report of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had visited 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 inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
