Best to See Your Toronto Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a normal question Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre gets when Toronto folks talk about chiropractic. Toronto chiropractic patients are a assorted lot. Some Toronto chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some Toronto chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue dictates (though keeping on the at-home care program that includes lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Toronto chiropractic patients discover that making a Toronto chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular schedule after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre appreciates every Toronto chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Toronto chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Toronto chiropractic patient can profit from Toronto chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre presents 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 promising outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre to really aid our Toronto back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Toronto chiropractic care.


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. Globally35, 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 differed. 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 relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.
