Helping New York back pain patients find relief is what Dr. Gary Stefanick does.  Does such confidence and experience offer better outcomes for New York chiropractic patients? Quite possibly reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient expects a good outcome from the care he or she is getting, the odds of a positive outcome are compounded. What about the inclination 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 doesn’t as much. Intriguing! The odds of meeting 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 preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method didn’t influence the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) Wow! Your New York chiropractor is confident that the New York treatment plan which likely incorporates Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will aid New York pain patients. Dr. Gary Stefanick has seen many New York back pain patients feel remarkable relief!


Including non-surgical distraction therapy to the treatment of lumbar disc herniation assists the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks received electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. They did well. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness dropped. But those patients who also underwent the distraction therapy did better. At the end of their care, clinical and radiological findings show improvement. The disc herniation reduction was more noted in the patients with distraction therapy addition to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Dr. Gary Stefanick sees it all the time!
