New York Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Geriatric back pain patients benefit from combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Shocked? Not likely! Your New York chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your New York chiropractor and you the New York back pain sufferer form a great spine care team. Dr. Gary Stefanick is your local New York chiropractic care center where New York back pain patients meet their New York chiropractor to design a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as future back pain prevention plan.

A recent high-level research review restates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Dr. Gary Stefanick values this verification! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of back pain in older adults. They strengthened the present statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for older back pain patients. The panel inserted two additional recommendations that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Dr. Gary Stefanick concurs! New York chiropractic patients often look for care to eliminate their back pain. Then, they find New York chiropractic care that goes beyond just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to welcome a healthier way of life.

This chiropractic care begins with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Dr. Gary Stefanick uses is known as Cox Technic. In research studies about this approach, it’s published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also demonstrated that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Dr. Gary Stefanick knows exercise is critical to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Dr. Gary Stefanick urges all our New York chiropractic patients to exercise.
