“How many times do I have to
see you, doc?” A common question for your Auburn
chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. goes by an
evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research
that goes back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the
system and its goals in which Auburn chiropractic patients can find
calm as they heal.
Auburn chiropractic patients would not
be chiropractic patients if it didn’t produce beneficial results.
The latest study of who utilizes
chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians
used chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower
than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent!
(1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic
for neck and back pain management. 35
million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past
year. (2) That number is expanding as more
people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative
approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may
require a few visits to get relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible
RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3
Curious about 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 reduced with
chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported
worse pain at first had more chiropractic
visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3
months, chronic neck and back pain patients were getting
better slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement,
and were potentially managing their chronic pain with
a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is
our goal, too, at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.: educate our Auburn back pain and
neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain
management and prevention! With Cox®
Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 12 visits
and 29 days were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit
longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic
patients form realistic expectations.
REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Auburn chronic back and neck
pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems
to pursue a cure for whatever ails, most chronic
spine pain patients want pain management that they know
will require ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic
care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has always presented
the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have pursued 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 drops 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 gives patients realistic expectations.
