SPINE PAIN BRINGS PATIENTS TO CHIROPRACTORS
Shocked? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka isn’t! We see spine pain all day
long, but research is designed to document what’s known. In a new study of 363
chiropractic patients, researchers found that there is a large range of
conditions that bring patients to a chiropractor, but spine and musculoskeletal
pain issues are the main ones: 67% of patients list these as the primary reason
to go to the chiropractor and 77% as a secondary reason to visit the chiropractor.
(1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s chiropractic practice certainly welcomes spine related
pain conditions and Sitka back pain sufferers!
WHO IS SEEN FIRST WHEN A BACK INJURY HAPPENS?
Chiropractors, medical doctors and physiotherapists are
typical providers to see when a Sitka back pain injury happens.
What makes a work-related back pain sufferer choose one over the other? Age,
income, community size, workplace issues, and prior injury. Longer time at a
job, higher personal income, prior similar injury experience and a mixed-manual
job seem to drive back pain affected workers to a chiropractor first. (2)
Whatever the driving force,Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is here for work-related Sitka
back pain patients with relieving Sitka chiropractic care!
VITAMIN C LEVEL EFFECTS BACK PAIN RATE
“It’s not just for your immune system anymore…” Nope!
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), or rather the lack of it, leads to poor collagen development
(necessary for quality ligaments and tendons and bone) and the occurrence of
back pain, neck pain, and low back pain with pain below the knee which is known
as sciatica or radicular pain. How many people lack a good level of vitamin C?
Many! (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka talks with our Sitka chiropractic patients
like you about your vitamin C intake and will work with you to elevate a low
vitamin C level as needed. Your immune system and your spine will thank you!
CHIROPRACTIC HELP FOR MIGRAINE
A study tracked the possibility of reducing a migraine’s
duration and effect and found that both were reduced significantly with
chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy. Great news! Now, since these
researchers were just really trying to see if they could establish a placebo
treatment to compare chiropractic treatment to in a future larger study, they
suggest that the effect may have just been placebo. (4) Would a
Sitka migraine sufferer care if it’s placebo or not if the pain is
relieved and duration is shortened? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka guesses the answer is “not
likely”. Sitka migraine sufferers are invited to try the Sitka
chiropractic manipulation Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers called Cox Technic for relief.
