Toronto Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Of course not! Your Toronto chiropractor takes care of your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Toronto chiropractor and you the Toronto back pain sufferer create a great spine care team. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is your local Toronto chiropractic care center where Toronto back pain patients meet their Toronto chiropractor to establish a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A new high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre values this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the existing statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel inserted two supplementary recommendations that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre agrees! Toronto chiropractic patients often look for care to get rid of their back pain. Then, they discover Toronto chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre employs is called Cox Technic. In research studies concerning this approach, it is published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes that exercise is important to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre urges all our Toronto chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
