The Novelli Wellness Center Relieves Chronic Neck and Back Pain

“How many visits will I have to make, doc?” A common question for your Buffalo, NY chiropractor. Chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness Center goes by an evidence-based algorithm of care supported by clinical research that stretches back to the 1970’s: The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Recent research bears out the system and its goals in which Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients can find calm as they heal.

CHIROPRACTIC USE

Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients wouldn’t be chiropractic patients if it didn’t help. The latest study of who uses chiropractic was conducted in Malaysia: 35% of Malayasians utilized chiropractic. Though it was slightly lower than traditional and complementary medicine care usage there, it is a good number! (1) Approximately 25% of U.S. residents sought chiropractic for neck and back pain management. 35 million U.S. adults saw a chiropractor in the past year. (2) That number is expanding as additional people pursue and find a non-surgical, conservative approach to pain relief in chiropractic knowing that it may take a few visits to obtain results. The Novelli Wellness Center is committed to setting a realistic treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

RECENT RESEARCH RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE AT 3 MONTHS

Wondering how many chiropractic visits patients use and the outcomes? A new study found that in 1,362 chronic low back pain patients and 1,214 chronic neck pain patients’ function improved and back and neck pain reduced with chiropractic care in 90 days. Those who reported worse pain at first had more chiropractic visits. Chronic low back pain sufferers who went to the chiropractor more than once a week benefitted more. At 3 months, chronic back and neck pain patients were improving slowly, may have even reached maximum improvement, and were potentially managing their chronic pain using a variety of chiropractic visit frequencies. (3) That’s our goal, too, at The Novelli Wellness Center: educate our Buffalo, NY back pain and neck pain patients about how they can support themselves with pain management and prevention! With Cox® Technic, a study of 1000 patients found that 29 days and 12 visits were the mean days and visits for improvement. Disc herniations took a bit longer and needed more visits than sprain/strains. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center shares statistics like this to assist our chiropractic patients form realistic expectations.

REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Buffalo, NY chronic back and neck pain patients are realistic. Despite health policy today that seems to pursue a cure for whatever is wrong, most chronic spine pain patients want pain management that they know will necessitate ongoing care rather than “cure” from their chiropractic care. (5) Cox® Technic used at The Novelli Wellness Center has always shared the notion of “control not cure” when it comes to most neck pain and back pain issues. It resonates with back pain and neck pain sufferers who have sought care from a variety of different providers that they understand it. The 50% Rule of Cox® Technic makes sense to them: 50% relief in 30 days or referral for imaging or other consultation, 50% relief reduces the visit frequency by 50%, 50% relief changes the treatment from Protocol I to Protocol II, etc. The chiropractic care system of Cox® Technic follows an established algorithm that offers patients realistic expectations.
