Best to See Your San Jose Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a familiar question McMurray Chiropractic Solutions responds to when San Jose folks talk about chiropractic. San Jose chiropractic patients are a mixed group. Some San Jose chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and stop coming. Some San Jose chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though following closely the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise keeps these issues at bay for many!). Some San Jose chiropractic patients find that coming for a San Jose chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a regular basis after pain relief is reached benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when prodded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions appreciates every San Jose chiropractic patient who entrusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this San Jose chiropractic practice.


Now, just how frequently a San Jose chiropractic patient can profit from San Jose chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions presents a new project in which chronic low back pain patients were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. Some visits were with spinal manipulation; some were with light massage; some not treatment at all. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments created the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has studied and reported about other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence permits McMurray Chiropractic Solutions to really aid our San Jose back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with San Jose chiropractic care.


The number of visits for low back pain episodes varies often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) gathered data on 1000 back pain patients. It documented the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean outcomes for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits differed. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One is more difficult to treat  than the other. 91% of patients found low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a San Jose chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is desired. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is at your service!
