Chiropractic Use Grows!
Chiropractic use grows alongside complementary and alternative
medicine (CAM) use. More use demonstrates how recent
generations are looking beyond conventional medical care
for their health, necessitating doctors to discuss CAM with their patients. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers hears from our
Vancouver chiropractic patients that these discussions do occur. Chiropractic is
one of the biggest manual therapy professions in the US and around
the world. 63% of back
pain patients and 30% of neck pain patients seek card from a chiropractor.
These chiropractic patients explain that chiropractic improves
their overall health and well-being, too. (2) Vancouver chiropractic
patients concur! Demand for chiropractic will steadily
grow as chiropractors are specially trained back pain specialists who trust
the clinical examination to clarify a diagnosis and set
a treatment plan around it. They use MRI and other
imaging studies not to diagnose but to support their clinical exam
findings, a protocol which is called for today in the medical literature
because MRI and clinical symptoms correlate poorly.
The MRI may reveal several spinal issues or no issues at all which causes
the doctor to go back to the clinical exam findings for the
treatment plan and relief. (3) That’s just what your Vancouver chiropractor does! Chiropractic
use is really growing for good reason!
TIP OF THE MONTH: Curcumin Eases Radicular Low
Curcumin is so talked about for natural
pain relief today…and with good reason! A new study reports that
cucumin is non-toxic, natural, and exceptionally
anti-inflammatory even alleviating lumbar
radiculopathy pain by decreasing
neuroinflammation, oxidative stress and nociceptive factors. Some laboratory findings reveal that
curcumin even fosters disc height recovery after disc herniation.
Curcumin may be the novel and safe way to care for
radiculopathy. No more of the
non-effective and unsafe use of current non-surgical medical treatments (like epidural
steroids and Tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) antagonists). (4) Curcumin is such an accessible and effective pain reliever to add to the Vancouver chiropractic non-surgical treatment plan!
