Best to See Your Auburn Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. responds to when Auburn folks talk about chiropractic. Auburn chiropractic patients are a mixed lot. Some Auburn chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Auburn chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Auburn chiropractic patients find that making a Auburn chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. appreciates every Auburn chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Auburn chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how frequently a Auburn chiropractic patient can profit from Auburn chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares a recent 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. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to really aid our Auburn back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Auburn 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. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits.
