Best to See Your Baton Rouge Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a usual question Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation hears when Baton Rouge folks talk about chiropractic. Baton Rouge chiropractic patients are a assorted lot. Some Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Baton Rouge chiropractic patients discover that coming for a Baton Rouge 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 keep doing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is grateful for every Baton Rouge chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Baton Rouge chiropractic practice.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Baton Rouge chiropractic patient can benefit from Baton Rouge chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation shares a new study in which participants with chronic low back pain received treatment three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most favorable outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. A year after care, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation to really help our Baton Rouge back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Baton Rouge chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 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 varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is always ready to help!
