Best to See Your Two Rivers Chiropractor As Long As You Need

“Do I have to see my chiropractor forever?” is a common question Lakeshore Chiropractic responds to when Two Rivers folks talk about chiropractic. Two Rivers chiropractic patients are a assorted group. Some Two Rivers chiropractic patients come for a specific spinal pain relief issue and quit. Some Two Rivers chiropractic patients come and go as their back pain or neck pain issue requires (though keeping on the at-home care program that incorporates lifestyle issues, diet, nutrition, and exercise helps keep these issues at bay for many!). Some Two Rivers chiropractic patients find that making a Two Rivers chiropractic spinal manipulation visit on a normal schedule after pain relief is attained benefits them: feeling better and keeping that better feeling when reminded to continuing healthy things like exercising, eating right and being adjusted. Lakeshore Chiropractic appreciates every Two Rivers chiropractic patient who trusts their spine’s healing and on-going health to this Two Rivers chiropractic practice.


Now, just how often a Two Rivers chiropractic patient can profit from Two Rivers chiropractic care visits is a research-documented answer for chronic low back pain patients. Lakeshore Chiropractic presents a recent project in which participants with chronic low back pain received treatment 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 created the most positive outcomes for chronic low back pain patients. At one year follow up, the 18 visits patients showed peak outcomes for disability and pain relief. (1) Lakeshore Chiropractic uses the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which has researched and documented for other specific spinal issues the number of visits and days to maximum improvement. Such evidence allows Lakeshore Chiropractic to really aid our Two Rivers back pain patients’ knowledge of what to expect with Two Rivers chiropractic care.


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

Whatever your underlying cause of spinal pain, a Two Rivers chiropractic treatment plan can be arranged for its relief with a recommendation for on-going chiropractic care if that is wanted. Lakeshore Chiropractic is at your service!
