Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

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

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Groton chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was done 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 went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as more people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to obtain relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found 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 had 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 improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office: educate our Groton back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Groton chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office has always presented the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have looked for care from a variety of different healthcare professionals 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.
