A new high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office appreciates this verification! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel added two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization influence general positive outcomes not just for pain reduction. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office concurs! Groton chiropractic patients frequently seek care to get rid of their back pain. Then, they find Groton chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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) react more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows exercise is important to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office urges all our Groton chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
