SPINAL MANIPULATION: A Beneficial Choice for Relief of Back Pain, Better Quality of
Life, Reduced Risk of Tests and Prescriptions
Spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) is a choice when it
comes to options for managing back pain, a choice
not all back pain patients are aware of but may
want to be. In an analysis of 83,025 insurance back pain claims,
28% of the patients were treated with
SMT. Of them, 24% underwent SMT initially, 4% delayed using SMT,
and 72% didn’t undergo SMT at all. Treating initial back pain episodes
with spinal manipulation decreased the risk of imaging studies,
injection procedures, and/or back surgery by close to 30%
compared with not receiving spinal manipulation treatment.
Delayed SMT also raised the risk for these procedures. (1) A review of older
Medicare chronic low back pain sufferers who received long-term
care with SMT revealed that they reported
higher health-related quality of life and satisfaction with care than those who
had long-term care with prescription drug therapy.
(2) Older Medicare chronic low back pain patients who initially chose opioid
analgesic therapy experienced a higher rate of adverse drug
events than the patients who chose SMT care. (3) Spinal manipulation is our forte!
Delivering gentle, research-documented spinal manipulation in
the form of gentle, well-investigated Cox® Technic is our choice.
Come feel it!

Buffalo, NY CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE
MANAGE OSTEOPOROSIS: Risk, Falls, Care
Osteoporosis-related falls are widespread
as osteoporosis is one of the most prevalent skeletal diseases. A review of two studies of older men and women with osteoporosis counted
their falls. Overall, falls within 4 months were documented to be indicators
of higher risk for non-spine and hip fracture in the next 12 months.
In women, a recent fall signaled an 8.1%
absolute risk of non-spine fracture in a year, a 2.5 times higher
risk than women who had not had falls, a 2.5%
absolute risk of hip fracture, and a 3.1 times higher fall risk.
(4) Falls are bad. The Novelli Wellness Center is here to
help you avoid falls and osteoporosis-related fractures. We
can talk about addressing options like nutrition (calcium and vitamin
D supplementation, etc.), gut microbiota balance, and exercise within the Buffalo, NY
chiropractic treatment plan for managing osteoporosis.
(5,6) Researchers observed that patients understood the benefit
of non-pharmacological management of osteoporosis including exercise,
nutrition, and fall prevention but admitted that they found it hard integrating these
approaches into everyday life. (6) Is that you? The Novelli Wellness Center
