Best to See Your Eugene Chiropractor As Long As You Need

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

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Eugene chiropractic patient can profit from Eugene chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares a new project in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. In the end, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most positive results for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic to really aid our Eugene back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Eugene chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes varies often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It recorded the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For particular 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 is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)
