KNEE PAIN? DISTRACTION HELPS!
Yes, similar to the Sitka chiropractic treatment
of back pain and neck pain using Cox Technic flexion distraction, knee
sufferers (like those with knee osteoarthritis) are finding relief with
distraction of the knee. These French researchers have developed a surgical
distraction procedure (separate the knee joint surgically and keep it that way
for 2 months with an external metal frame!). (1) New protocols are in
development now and being tested that don’t require surgery to distract the
knee joint, just hands-on flexion distraction of the knee joint. (Thanks to Dr.
Luigi Albano for first documenting this! (7)).
50% RELIEF – EXCELLENT RESULT!
Patients who have expectations of relief experience higher
satisfaction with treatment. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka always want to fully share
realistic outcome expectations with our Sitka chiropractic care.
Sometimes 50% is an excellent outcome. If you can walk your dog again, you may
be very pleased with care. Further, back surgery outcomes for low back and leg
pain due to spinal stenosis showed 53% of surgically treated and 50% of
non-surgically treated report improvement of back pain. (3) Trust Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
to have an honest talk about expected clinical outcomes.
VISION IMPROVED WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Spinal manipulation in this research study showed immediate
effects on visual acuity. Vision improvement was statistically significant
after chiropractic cervical spine manipulation. The researchers look forward to
now doing a larger scale study. (4) The effects of chiropractic treatment keep
coming! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is excited to share chiropractic with our
Sitka patients, friends and family!
CHIROPRACTIC IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEART!
There is such a thing as musculoskeletal chest pain. There is
such a thing as acute, non-specific chest pain of musculoskeletal origin. Those
sound like back pain classifications! Heart researchers are reporting that
chiropractic care is cost-effective and increases the quality of life of these
heart patients! (5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka invites our Sitka chiropractic
patients to bring their hearts with them to the next Sitka chiropractic
CHIROPRACTIC CARE COSTS LESS FOR NECK PAIN
When a referral service or provider referral is involved in
the care of neck pain (uncomplicated and complicated), fees are affected. MD/PT
care is more expensive on average than MD/DC care. Chiropractic care alone or care without
referrers in the middle is less expensive, too. (6) Referrals from our Sitka
chiropractic patients to their friends and family are always appreciated!
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka appreciates all our patient referrals!
