Preston Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Of course not! Your Preston chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Preston chiropractor and you the Preston back pain sufferer create a great spine care team. Chiropractic Associates is your local Preston chiropractic care center where Preston back pain patients meet their Preston chiropractor to set a pain relieving treatment plan as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A recent high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Chiropractic Associates values this verification! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists participated in this best practices guidelinesreview and update. In the end, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They reinforced the present statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel added two additional recommendations that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Chiropractic Associates agrees! Preston chiropractic patients often seek care that will reduce their back pain. Then, they find Preston chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to embrace a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Chiropractic Associates employs is called Cox Technic. In research studies about this approach, it is published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond more favorably to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Chiropractic Associates knows exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Chiropractic Associates encourages all our Preston chiropractic patients to exercise.

Schedule your Preston chiropractic visit with Chiropractic Associates to discuss Preston back pain relief and prevention in older adults with Preston chiropractic care and suitable Preston exercise. Your Preston chiropractor and you will collaborate as well as recommended spinal manipulation and exercise do to safely and effectively relieve low back pain.
