McHenry Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Of course not! Your McHenry chiropractor treats your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your McHenry chiropractor and you the McHenry back pain sufferer create a great spine care team. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is your local McHenry chiropractic care center where McHenry back pain patients meet their McHenry chiropractor to establish a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A recent high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic values this confirmation! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists participated in this best practices guidelinesreview and update. Conclusively, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the current statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel inserted two additional recommendations that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization contribute to general positive outcomes beyond pain reduction. (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic concurs! McHenry chiropractic patients frequently look for care that will decrease their back pain. Then, they find McHenry chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to embrace a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach OrthoIllinois Chiropractic employs is called Cox Technic. In research studies about this approach, it is known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows exercise is crucial to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic urges all our McHenry chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.

Schedule your McHenry chiropractic appointment with OrthoIllinois Chiropractic to discuss McHenry back pain relief and prevention in older adults with McHenry chiropractic care and suitable McHenry exercise. Your McHenry chiropractor and you will act as a team as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and effectively relieve low back pain.
