Best to See Your Fort Wayne Chiropractor As Long As You Need

December 26, 2017

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc responds to when Fort Wayne folks talk about chiropractic. Fort Wayne chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Fort Wayne chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though following closely the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some Fort Wayne chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Fort Wayne chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal basis after pain relief is achieved benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is grateful for every Fort Wayne chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Fort Wayne chiropractic practice.


Now, just how frequently a Fort Wayne chiropractic patient can gain from Fort Wayne chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc shares a recent project in which participants with chronic low back pain received treatment 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 created the most positive results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc to really help our Fort Wayne back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Fort Wayne chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes fluctuates 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 results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is at your service!
