Vancouver Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can finish that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Vancouver back pain and neck pain sufferers is said to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Vancouver Disc Centers presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Vancouver Disc Centers with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Vancouver Disc Centers for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Vancouver Disc Centers also understands that our Vancouver chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as excited to do their at-home care. They’re not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients reported making their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) made sense, but only 44% of them actually followed through in doing the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we’ll continue doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and supportively remind you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC REDUCED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That’s a lot of money and pain. Vancouver Disc Centers makes itself accessible to our Vancouver spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients receive escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is done by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to require escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers offers spinal manipulation. Your Vancouver chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to acquire spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Vancouver furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
