Watertown Exercise and Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Older Adult Back Pain

Older back pain patients find relief with combined chiropractic care: spinal manipulation and mobilization plus exercise. That is what new best practices guidelines recommend. Surprised? Of course not! Your Watertown chiropractor treats your spine, and you treat your spine! Together, your Watertown chiropractor and you the Watertown back pain sufferer make a great spine care team. Watertown Wellness Center is your local Watertown chiropractic care center where Watertown back pain patients meet their Watertown chiropractor to set a treatment plan to relieve pain as well as a plan to prevent future back pain.

A new high-level research review reaffirms that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. Watertown Wellness Center values this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. Conclusively, they agreed on current statements about the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the existing statement about how safe spinal manipulation is for these patients. The panel inserted two additional recommendations that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) Watertown Wellness Center agrees! Watertown chiropractic patients often look for care to get rid of their back pain. Then, they find Watertown chiropractic care that does more than just back pain relief. Chiropractic incorporation of nutrition, exercise, and wellness care encourages them to welcome a healthier approach to life.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation method Watertown Wellness Center employs is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies about this approach, it is known 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 showed that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – responds better to exercise. (2) Watertown Wellness Center recognizes that exercise is important to control back pain and prevent future back pain. Watertown Wellness Center urges all our Watertown chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
