Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

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

CHIROPRACTIC USE

West Des Moines chiropractic patients would not be chiropractic patients if it did not produce beneficial results. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good percent! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for back and neck pain management. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may require a few visits to get results. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for optimal outcome.

NEW RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent 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 90 days. Those who reported worse pain initially had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers with more than one visit a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were getting better slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa: educate our West Des Moines back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean visits and days for improvement. Disc herniations did take a little longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa presents statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

West Des Moines chronic neck and back pain sufferers are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to seek a cure for whatever ails, most chronic spine pain patients pursue pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa has always shared the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most back pain and neck pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought 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 reduces 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 offers patients realistic expectations.
