Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many times do I have to see you, doc?” A conventional question for your Toronto chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre follows an evidence-based algorithm of care backed by clinical research that stretches back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Newer research confirms the system and its goals in which Toronto chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Toronto 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 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 management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may take a few visits to get relief. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Curious about how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A recent study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain decreased with chiropractic care in three months. 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 neck and back pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre: educate our Toronto back pain and neck pain patients about how they can help themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean days and visits for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and required more visits than sprain/strains. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre shares statistics like this to help our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Toronto chronic neck and back pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to want a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients seek pain management that they understand will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic implemented at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has always presented the idea of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with neck pain and back pain sufferers who have looked for care from a variety of different healthcare professionals that they “get” 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 offers patients realistic expectations.
