Vancouver Disc Centers Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A common question for your Vancouver chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that stretches back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Vancouver chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Vancouver chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it did not help. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians used chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is growing as additional people seek and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may take a few visits to get results. Vancouver Disc Centers is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study reported that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in three months. Those who reported worse pain at first went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Vancouver Disc Centers: educate our Vancouver back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Vancouver chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they know will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Vancouver Disc Centers has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have pursued care from a variety of different providers that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief reduces the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that gives patients realistic expectations.
