Geriatric back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That’s what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Of course not! Your Carrolltown chiropractor treats your spine, and you take care of your spine! Together, your Carrolltown chiropractor and you the Carrolltown back pain sufferer create a great spine care team. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is your local Carrolltown chiropractic care center where Carrolltown back pain patients meet their Carrolltown chiropractor to set a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A recent high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation values this confirmation! 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 guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they agreed on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They reinforced the current statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel inserted two supplementary notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation agrees! Carrolltown chiropractic patients often look for care that will reduce their back pain. Then, they find Carrolltown chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care allows them to welcome a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation applies is known as Cox Technic. In research studies about this approach, it’s known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows exercise is critical to manage back pain and prevent future back pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation urges all our Carrolltown chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
