Ashburn chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost reducing.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn welcomes all spine pain patients! We know the frustration that comes with spine pain. Ashburn chiropractic spinal manipulation helps. Though low back pain is a major source of disability globally, its sufferers who have persistent or recurrent episodes of low back pain realize that chiropractic maintenance care is valuable as it is patient-centered care. (1) Neck pain sufferers, too, discover relief with chiropractic. Neck pain patients who undergo spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were found to be 2.38 times less likely to need escalated and more expensive care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other type of care (46%). (2) A new study of Medicare patient claims reports that patients who had less access to chiropractic care had an increase in visits (32.3 a year) to primary care physicians for spine pain and an uptick in spine surgeries (5.5 a year) costing an extra $114,967 per 1000 Medicare beneficiaries and $391 million nationally. (3) Your Ashburn chiropractor is well-qualified in performing spinal manipulation.  Spinal manipulation is and has been recommended as first-line treatment for low back pain. Reviews of Medicare claims note that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the general supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Do not worry! Your hometown, Ashburn chiropractor has no intention of not providing pain-relieving spinal manipulation, particularly the gentle, research-supported Cox® Technic style of spinal manipulation.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kurt Olding on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he presents research on the role of spinal manipulation in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for the relief of spinal stenosis, a common spine pain condition in the over-65 age set.

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn shares new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

B vitamins are beneficial. B12 deficiency is often linked with dementia in patients 65 years old and over. It’s also been seen in young people who have normal B12 levels but have a high methylmalonic acid (MMA) level. Checking the MMA level may be a useful test in patients with symptoms that seem unconnected as in one patient with neuropathy, depression and stomach issues who was found to have a high MMA. (5) Biotin (B7) supplementation is demonstrating potential in the treatment of neuropathic pain and could reduce the necessary doses of analgesic drugs. (6) Riboflavin (B2) in foods and via supplements is known for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A new study reported that B2 offers anti-itch properties. (7) Are your B levels good? Let’s talk at your next visit!
