According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation ease pain and lessen the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to back and neck pain sufferers. (Even dogs benefited from veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-explained chiropractic treatment plan. CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT Spinal manipulation is a staple treatment at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for good reason! A rat study regarding the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on lessening neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization did a better job of relieving pain. Manipulation was a bit quicker in providing relief and easing severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are prominent treatments at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for back pain and radiculopathy.

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC REDUCED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE Researchers wondered just how access to chiropractic influenced medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care increased the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc makes itself accessible to our Fort Wayne spine pain sufferers! Further, 42% of neck pain patients go on to escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients managed with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to undergo escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. Their risk of treatment escalation was double. (4) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc delivers spinal manipulation. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is skilled in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation. EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers have a tendency to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. A study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This implies that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers getting spondylosis.
