Helping Sitka back pain patients find relief is what Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka does.  With such experience and confidence, do better outcomes arise for Sitka back pain patients at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka? Likely reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient anticipates a good outcome from the care he or she is receiving, the odds of a positive outcome are increased. What about the preference for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s preference  for treatment type influence the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s does not as much. Very interesting! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief rose by 69.3 times when that back pain patient received care from a healthcare provider team which strongly favored the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method did not improve the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is stronger than the patient’s preference. (1) So good! Your Sitka chiropractor is confident that the Sitka treatment plan which likely includes Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will aid Sitka pain patients. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka has witnessed many Sitka back pain patients experience great relief!


Including non-surgical distraction therapy to the care of lumbar disc herniation assists the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks underwent electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. The patients improved. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness reduced. But those patients who also underwent the distraction therapy did better. Their clinical and radiological evidence when care was over shows improvement. The disc herniation reduction was more noted in the patients with distraction therapy addition to the treatment plan. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is not surprised! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees it all the time!
