Auburn Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other Auburn folks? Let us look at where it is in others’ lives for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Is that news to you? Likely as it takes numerous years for such innovative, proven concepts to trickle down to general knowledge. Some people (not our Auburn chiropractic clients!) think chiropractors are quacks when actually chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your Auburn chiropractor at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. certainly is the Auburn back pain specialist!

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. welcomes back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our Auburn chiropractic office, particularly the more difficult cases! For example, patients who experience recurrent lumbar disc herniation reportedly respond to non-surgical care and avoid the need for reoperation. (3) Reports say that from 9 to 33% of people receive spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those people see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The call for chiropractic spine care is rising. A majority of neurosurgeons think that a minimum period of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a Auburn neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is a possibility for pain relief. Another such study reported that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is better for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs initiating the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is stated in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were reported for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a worthy idea. A study of 137 patients proposed to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has vast success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. employs a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves permitting normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A report of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had received care from at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People choosing this form of care were quite a bit younger and tended to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Such healthcare consumers were significantly more apt to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more successful than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
