Groton Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Groton back pain and neck pain sufferers is said to do the same. Access needs to be just as simple as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and diminish the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office offers gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and decreasing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office also knows that our Groton chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as motivated to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients said they made their appointments. That is the easier part! 82% said their chiropractor’s recommendations for treatment and at-home care (stretching and exercise) were understandable, but only 44% of them actually did the at-home care. (2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to manage your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and suffering. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office makes itself accessible to our Groton spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients experience escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to experience escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office offers spinal manipulation. Your Groton chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are quite good at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease noted by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies aged 8 weeks to one year compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At a year old, the treated puppies were found to have spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially lessen the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our Groton furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
