Groton Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where is chiropractic medicine in your life, in the lives of other Groton folks? Let us start with where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Hutter Chiropractic Office

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Did you know that? Not likely because it requires numerous years for such up-to-date, proven models to filter to common knowledge. There are even people who (not our Groton chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when actually chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Groton chiropractor at Hutter Chiropractic Office certainly is the Groton back pain specialist!

Hutter Chiropractic Office invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Groton chiropractic practice, particularly the more difficult cases! For example, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and escape the need for reoperation. (3) Reports state that from 9 to 33% of people get spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those people see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is increasing. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum duration of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the optimal timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Groton neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Hutter Chiropractic Office is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study found that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs triggering the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is reported in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a good idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed in 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Hutter Chiropractic Office has considerable success in relieving low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Hutter Chiropractic Office utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A study of 674 emergency room adult visits showed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People seeking such care were quite a bit younger and more probable to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Users were much more likely to believe that MBP inhibited illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
