San Jose Chiropractic Patients Use Chiropractic for Spine Care

Where does chiropractic medicine fit in your life, in the lives of other San Jose folks? Let’s start with where it fits in the lives of others for spine care, back pain relief, and neck pain relief at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions

SPINAL MANIPULATION IS RECOMMENDED

Chiropractic spinal manipulation is recommended for at least 12 weeks before referral for spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation. (1) The American Medical Association, the American Pain Society, the American College of Physicians and Harvard Medical School all state spinal manipulation and chiropractic are first line care for low back pain. (2) Have you heard that before? Not likely as it is known to take many years for such innovative, proven models to trickle down to general knowledge. There are even people who (not our San Jose chiropractic clients!) deem chiropractors are quacks when as a matter of fact chiropractors are non-surgical back spine specialists. Your San Jose chiropractor at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions certainly is the San Jose back pain specialist!

McMurray Chiropractic Solutions invites back pain, neck pain and spine pain patients to our San Jose chiropractic practice, particularly the more difficult cases! For example, patients who have recurrent lumbar disc herniation are found to respond to non-surgical care and avoid the necessity of reoperation. (3) Reports assert that from 9 to 33% of people receive spinal manipulation for pain and disability and 98% of those who do receive spinal manipulation see chiropractors. (4)

DEMAND FOR CHIROPRACTIC GROWS

The demand for chiropractic spine care is growing. A majority of neurosurgeons consider a minimum time of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain is the best timing before performing surgery for cervical spine disc herniation. (5) What does such a San Jose neck pain patient do? Chiropractic care at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is a possibility for pain relief. Another similar study found that no conclusion is drawn as to whether surgical or nonsurgical treatment is superior for individuals with lumbar spine degeneration of discs causing the condition termed stenosis. Further, a high rate of adverse effects is stated in three of five surgical groups while no side effects were described for any of the conservative treatment options. (6)

SECOND OPINION IS VALUABLE

A second opinion before spine surgery is a good idea. A study of 137 patients recommended to have lumbar spine fusion at one institution found on second opinion at a multidisciplinary clinic that 58% did not require surgery but rather non-surgical treatment. Of those found to require surgery, the type of surgery was changed for 28% of the patients. (7) Chiropractic spinal manipulation as used at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions has considerable success in treating low back and neck pain and leg and arm pain. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions utilizes a spinal manipulation technique known as Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression which incorporates placing the spine under distraction to decompress nerves allowing normal spine motion to return. An example is a paper reporting flexion–distraction spinal manipulation used to relieve an L4-L5 disk extrusion causing L5 nerve root radiculopathy in a 40 year old naval officer. (8)

MIND-BODY PRACTITIONERS (INCLUDING CHIROPRACTORS) HELP

A report of 674 emergency room adult visits revealed that 500 (74.2%) patients had used at least one mind body practitioner (MBP), defined as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, yoga, or meditation practitioner. People going to them were significantly younger and tended to have private health insurance. 33% saw a chiropractor. Such healthcare consumers were much more prone to believe that MBP prevented illness, treated illness, and was safe, more effective than prescription medicines, supportive of prescription medications, and more holistic.
