San Jose chiropractic spinal manipulation care is relieving and cost effective.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS EFFECTIVE AND COST REDUCING FOR SPINE CARE

Chiropractic Solutions welcomes all spine pain patients! Spine pain is unwelcome by its sufferers. San Jose chiropractic spinal manipulation is beneficial for many. Though low back pain is a major cause of disability globally, its sufferers who have persistent or recurrent episodes of low back pain realize that chiropractic maintenance care is effective 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 – had lowered risk by 2.38 times to need higher level and costly care like imaging, injection, emergency room or surgery (just 26%) than patients who were treated with other kinds of care (46%). (2) A recent study of Medicare patient claims reveals that patients who had decreased access to chiropractic care had an uptick 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 San Jose 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 point out that chiropractors are the majority of healthcare providers for spinal manipulation and that the overall supply of spinal manipulation providers is dropping. (4) Have no fear! Your hometown, San Jose chiropractor does not intend to stop 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 discusses the place 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 group.

Chiropractic Solutions shares new research on the benefit of adequate B vitamin levels. 

San Jose CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Beneficial B Vitamins

The benefits of B vitamins is undeniable. B12 deficiency is commonly linked with dementia in patients over 65 years of age. It’s also been seen in younger people who have normal B12 levels but their methylmalonic acid (MMA) level is high. Checking the MMA level may be a useful test in patients with symptoms that seem unrelated 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 renowned for its antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory effects among others. A new study found that B2 to be anti-itch. (7) How are your B levels? Let’s talk at your next visit!
