Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation Effective
In younger back pain patients, those 21 to 54 years old, the
more recognized side-lying thrust chiropractic spinal manipulation produces
short term effects of improvement in low back pain the same as non-thrust flexion
distraction spinal manipulation. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses the non-thrust chiropractic
flexion distraction technique, Cox Technic, and finds that Sitka patients
in all age groups and especially those 60, 70, or 80 years old really appreciate
the gentle non-thrust approach to their back pain relief! How about you? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
invites you to experience the gentle, Sitka chiropractic difference.

8-12 Weeks of Arm Pain BEFORE Neck Surgery…Just the Right
Amount of Time for Chiropractic Care!
Neck surgery is a serious undertaking. Just ask any post-neck
surgery patient. How long do neurosurgeons who do neck surgeries for cervical
disc herniations with arm pain wait before doing neck surgery? 8 to 12 weeks.
(3) That’s just enough time for your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
to help! In a study of 39 patients with cervical disc herniation and arm pain, treatment
with chiropractic, non-surgical Cox Technic as used in this chiropractic clinic produced pain
reduction in a mean of 13.2 treatments for a drop of 41.2 points on the visual
analog scale. (4) That’s relief without surgery!
Natural Curcumin Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Curcumin from turmeric (a spice known for its
anti-inflammatory properties) shows “superior results over corticosteroids” in
helping inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis. (5) Further, curcumin is
shown to promote peripheral nerve regeneration and recovery. (6) And the bonus
is that curcumin is a natural approach to pain and inflammation reduction! Then
combining curcumin with the Sitka chiropractic Cox Technic’s
stretching may well produce even more satisfactory results since stretching of
the connective tissues is shown help reduce inflammatory mechanisms within the
tissue in the early stages of inflammation. (7) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s multi-pronged
approach to pain relief is beneficial for Sitka patients.
