Ashburn Chiropractic and Manipulation Ease and Keep Pain At Bay

“An apple a day…” Everyone can complete that saying! Access to chiropractic and spinal manipulation for Ashburn back pain and neck pain sufferers is reported to do the same. Access just needs to be as easy as access to apples! According to research, chiropractic and spinal manipulation relieve pain and reduce the need for escalated treatments and tests when they are clearly accessible to neck and back pain sufferers. (Even dogs were helped by veterinary chiropractic spinal manipulation!) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn presents gentle spinal manipulation via a well-informed chiropractic treatment plan.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BACK PAIN MANAGEMENT

Spinal manipulation is a primary treatment at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn with good reason! A rat study of the effect of manipulation and mobilization and sham treatment on decreasing neuroinflammation in acute lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) showed that manipulation and mobilization resulted in more pain relief. Manipulation was a little faster in delivering relief and halting severe radiculopathy. (1) Spinal manipulation and mobilization are leading treatments at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn for back pain and radiculopathy. We’re here for you as soon as you bring your back pain and/or leg pain to us!  Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn also knows that our Ashburn chiropractic patients are excited to receive in-office care but not always as motivated to do their at-home care.

(2) We know it’s tough to make time at home, and we will continue doing our best at every visit to treat your spinal condition…and encourage you to do yours!

SPINAL MANIPULATION AND ACCESS TO CHIROPRACTIC LESSENED NEED FOR MORE ADVANCED CARE

Researchers questioned just how access to chiropractic affected medical care for older adults with spinal pain. In an analysis of Medicare claims for 39,278 older adult chiropractic users, reduced access to chiropractic care expanded the use of medical services (primary care physician visits and spine surgeries) for spine pain conditions. The researchers equated this to an additional cost of $114,967 per 1000 beneficiaries ($391 million nationally). (3) That is a lot of money and pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn makes itself accessible to our Ashburn spine pain sufferers! Additionally, 42% of neck pain patients experience escalated treatments like imaging, injection, emergency room, surgery. Neck pain patients treated with spinal manipulation – 90% of which is delivered by chiropractors in the US – were less likely to go onto escalated care. Only 26% of spinal manipulation patients went on to escalated care whereas 46% of neck pain sufferers who sought other types of care did. They were at twice the risk of treatment escalation. (4) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers spinal manipulation. Your Ashburn chiropractor is experienced in performing safe, gentle, relieving spinal manipulation.

EVEN DOGS BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

There are chiropractic colleagues who also are skilled at performing spinal manipulation on animals! Interesting! Certain dog breeds like boxers tend to develop spondylosis deformans, a spinal disease distinguished by disc degeneration and bone spurs. One study of boxer puppies from 8 weeks old to one year of age compared puppies treated with veterinary chiropractic each month to same aged boxers not treated with chiropractic. At one year of age, the treated puppies had spondylosis significantly less (only 25% were found to have it on imaging) than the the control puppies (46.5% had it on imaging). This suggests that veterinary chiropractic treatment may beneficially reduce the probably of young boxers acquiring spondylosis. (5) Our Ashburn furry companions benefit with chiropractic treatment, too!
