Eugene 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 Eugene back pain and neck pain sufferers is documented 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 lessen the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are easily accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic with good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on reducing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) demonstrated that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a little quicker in delivering relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic for back pain and radiculopathy. We are here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to our office!  Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic also knows that our Eugene chiropractic patients are motivated to receive in-office care but not always as eager to do their at-home care. They are not alone! 89% of chiropractic patients told researcher they went to their appointments. That’s 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 is tough to make time at home, and we’ll continue doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

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

Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic affected medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, less access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers likened this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and suffering. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic makes itself accessible to our Eugene spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients receive 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 require escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients underwent escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who pursued other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic delivers spinal manipulation. Your Eugene chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at doing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Some 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 from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic monthly to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies were found to experience spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) versus the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis. (5) Our Eugene furry companions are helped with chiropractic treatment, too!
