Best to See Your Pflugerville Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question Pflugerville Wellness Center responds to when Pflugerville folks talk about chiropractic. Pflugerville chiropractic patients are a diverse lot. Some Pflugerville chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Pflugerville chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Pflugerville chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Pflugerville chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Pflugerville Wellness Center appreciates every Pflugerville chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Pflugerville chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Pflugerville chiropractic patient can benefit from Pflugerville chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Pflugerville Wellness Center shares a recent project in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Pflugerville Wellness Center to really help our Pflugerville back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Pflugerville chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)
