Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A familiar question for your Eugene chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed 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 Eugene chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Eugene chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it did not 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) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for back and neck pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. (2) That number is expanding as more people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may require a few visits to obtain results. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new 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 decreased with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain at first had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic: educate our Eugene back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations took a little longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Eugene chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they understand will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic has always presented the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have looked for care from a variety of different providers that they “get” 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.
