Soft Health and Healing Clinic Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A conventional question for your Brooks chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that extends back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Brooks chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Brooks chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was completed in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians visited chiropractic. Though it was very lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents pursued chiropractic for back and neck pain treatment. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as more people look for and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may take a few visits to get relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study reported that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in 3 months. Those who reported worse pain at first had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Soft Health and Healing Clinic: educate our Brooks back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits to improvement in a study of 1000 patients. Disc herniations did take a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Brooks chronic neck and back pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Soft Health and Healing Clinic has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have pursued care from a variety of different healthcare professionals that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief decreases the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that gives patients realistic expectations.
