Spengel Chiropractic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A conventional question for your McHenry chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Spengel Chiropractic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which McHenry chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

McHenry chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it did not produce beneficial results. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for neck and back pain care. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as more people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may require a few visits to get results. Spengel Chiropractic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

RECENT 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 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially went for more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic neck and back pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain with a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Spengel Chiropractic: educate our McHenry back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Spengel Chiropractic presents statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

McHenry chronic neck and back pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients want pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Spengel Chiropractic has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have sought care from so many 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 decreases 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 offers patients realistic expectations.
