Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A conventional question for your Ashburn chiropractor. Chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn goes by 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. Recent research confirms the system and its goals in which Ashburn chiropractic patients can find peace as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Ashburn chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it did not help. The latest study of who utilizes chiropractic was done in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly below traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) About 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for neck and back pain management. 35 million U.S. adults went to a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is growing as more people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic understanding that it may require a few visits to obtain results. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 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 3 months. Those who reported worse pain at first had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic neck and back pain patients were improving slowly, may have even attained maximum improvement, and were quite possibly managing their chronic pain using a range of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That is our goal, too, at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn: educate our Ashburn 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 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients make realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Ashburn chronic back and neck 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 Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn has always presented the notion 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 pursued care from so many different providers 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 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 provides patients realistic expectations.
