Touch is Part of Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.s Relieving Back Pain Care

For all the discussion of artificial intelligence and the future of robots and computers in our lives, the benefit of human touch cannot be replaced. Chiropractic is a hands-on profession. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. offers hands-on Auburn chiropractic care. Chiropractic has an extensive history of effective manual manipulation and treatment for back pain, neck pain and related extremity pain. Touch can’t be dismissed in its impact on healing and isn’t ignored by your Auburn chiropractor as your pain-relieving treatment plan is established beginning with day one’s exam and extending through the entire treatment process.


Touch in the doctor-patient relationship is important. A new report states that touch can initiate neuromodulatory effects to reduce pain and reduce}decrease patient anxiety about the pain. Researchers reported that the effect of touch begins with the confident handshake and extends through the physical examination, especially when the examining physician touches the area the patient explains is painful. This confirms to the patient that the doctor comprehends the patient’s pain. Touch also extends into treatment for manual and manipulative treating physicians. (1) The effect of touch cannot be denied. Your Auburn chiropractor at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows this to be true and sees its effect daily and is pleased to see its importance discussed in the medical literature for manual therapy’s beneficial role in the health care system for conditions like Auburn back pain, neck pain, arm pain, and sciatic leg pain.


A researcher remarked on an influential study’s outcomes regarding the effect of spinal manipulation and exercise for back pain relief: “the data are compatible with a non-specific effect caused by touch.” (2) Science seeks to quantify just how human touch affects back pain relief. Until that is done, chiropractic physicians like your Auburn chiropractor will welcome the effect of touch as they provide spinal manipulation with their hands.


Chiropractors depend on their sense of touch in providing the proper forces to the spine, forces that deliver pain relief for the back pain and neck pain patient. It takes experience to really refine the appropriate force application. Today, though, technology may help with this as force-feedback systems are assisting doctors achieve that vital experience. With the chiropractic technique system utilized at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C., research has documented just what those proper, pain-relieving forces are. (3,4) Force-measuring equipment has been developed and incorporated into teaching and daily-use chiropractic tables. (As a bonus, in doing the research study to test forces with patients, no serious adverse effects were documented. “First, do no harm.”)  (5,6) The Cox® Technic flexion distraction procedures used at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. are documented, gentle, and efficient for easing pain and dropping intradiscal pressures (7,8). That is a chiropractic treatment outcome arrangement our Auburn chiropractic patients seek.
