OPTIMAL NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN 

Now, just how often a Buffalo, NY chiropractic patient can benefit from Buffalo, NY chiropractic care visits is a well-researched answer for chronic low back pain patients. The Novelli Wellness Center shares a recent study in which participants with chronic low back pain were treated three times a week for 6 weeks. During each visit the patient would receive spinal manipulation or light massage or no treatment. Finally, 12 chiropractic spinal manipulation treatments produced the most favorable results for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed greatest outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal conditions the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows The Novelli Wellness Center to really aid our Buffalo, NY back pain patients’ understanding of what to expect with Buffalo, NY chiropractic care.

NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Overall, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For particular conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. Treating a disc herniation is quite different from treating a sprain. One is more challenging  than the other. 91% of patients discovered low back and leg pain relief on average in less than 90 days (when the condition turns "chronic") and 12 visits. (2)
