Results. Pain Relief. That is what our Augusta back pain and neck pain patients want from our Augusta chiropractic care. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic realizes this and provides this with reasonable expectations lining up with what our spine pain patients want. Relief is possible. We will talk about how, how much, and when.
PATIENT INPUT REGARDING WHAT RELIEF MEANS
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic always puts our back pain and neck pain patients at the core of care. We listen to what our Augusta chiropractic patients want to do that they cannot do now. It makes sense to place such a goal/goals at the center of care! A review of 12 studies regarding the non-surgical care of chronic low back pain explains that patient-led goal setting is effective alone as a treatment element to attaining desired back pain relief. (1) This is longed-for news to the millions of annual chronic low back pain sufferers. They can boost the chances of their own relief! That’s why we ask our Augusta back pain and neck pain sufferers what they want to do that they can’t do now. The one thing - or many things – our patients want to do motivate all of us1!
SURGICAL OR NON-SURGICAL
Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic purposely wants to set realistic expectations that motivate us all. Many Augusta back pain sufferers question if surgery is better/quicker than non-surgical, chiropractic spinal manipulative care. A recent article offers a few ideas on surgery for lumbar disc herniation due to pre- and post-surgery considerations: (A) evidence that immune/auto-immunity may be a factor in spontaneous resolution of a lumbar disc herniation, (B) documented long-term complications of lumbar spine fusion (adjacent segment disease, implant failure, etc.), (C) systemic and local reactions to metal instrumentation, (D) ambiguous parameters as to when and for what issues spinal implant removal may be warranted, and (E) postoperative lumbar spinal stiffness. (2) With these concerns in mind, let’s consider another report that highlights the immediate beneficial effects of spinal mobilization for low back pain sufferers: reduced muscle stiffness, elasticity, and tone. Admittedly, baseline stiffness, BMI, waist circumference and sex may influence the outcomes. (3) At Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic, our Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management is shown beneficial for a range of patient conditions.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP WITH RELIEF…AND IN WHAT TIMEFRAME
Augusta chiropractic care of back and neck pain cares for a multitude of spinal conditions in patients of all sizes and shapes. Published studies about Cox® Technic have shown how spinal stiffness may impact positive outcomes. Spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic may be applied in the gentlest manner in a variety of doctor-controlled situations that are comfortable for the patient. Exercise and nutrition round out the treatment plan. (For wine lovers, new nutritional research reported on the benefits of reservatrol and its anti-oxidant effects in reducing the progression of intervertebral disc degeneration at the mitochondrial cell level by getting rid of reactive oxygen species!
