SPINE PAIN BRINGS PATIENTS TO CHIROPRACTORS

Shocked? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider isn’t! We see spine pain all day long, but research is designed to document what’s known. In a new study of 363 chiropractic patients, researchers found that there is a large range of conditions that bring patients to a chiropractor, but spine and musculoskeletal pain issues are the main ones: 67% of patients list these as the primary reason to go to the chiropractor and 77% as a secondary reason to visit the chiropractor. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider’s chiropractic practice certainly welcomes spine related pain conditions and Ottawa back pain sufferers!

 

WHO IS SEEN FIRST WHEN A BACK INJURY HAPPENS?

Chiropractors, medical doctors and physiotherapists are typical providers to see when a Ottawa back pain injury happens. What makes a work-related back pain sufferer choose one over the other? Age, income, community size, workplace issues, and prior injury. Longer time at a job, higher personal income, prior similar injury experience and a mixed-manual job seem to drive back pain affected workers to a chiropractor first. (2) Whatever the driving force,The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is here for work-related Ottawa back pain patients with relieving Ottawa chiropractic care!

 

VITAMIN C LEVEL EFFECTS BACK PAIN RATE

“It’s not just for your immune system anymore…” Nope! Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), or rather the lack of it, leads to poor collagen development (necessary for quality ligaments and tendons and bone) and the occurrence of back pain, neck pain, and low back pain with pain below the knee which is known as sciatica or radicular pain. How many people lack a good level of vitamin C? Many! (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider talks with our Ottawa chiropractic patients like you about your vitamin C intake and will work with you to elevate a low vitamin C level as needed. Your immune system and your spine will thank you!

 

CHIROPRACTIC HELP FOR MIGRAINE

A study tracked the possibility of reducing a migraine’s duration and effect and found that both were reduced significantly with chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy. Great news! Now, since these researchers were just really trying to see if they could establish a placebo treatment to compare chiropractic treatment to in a future larger study, they suggest that the effect may have just been placebo. (4) Would a Ottawa migraine sufferer care if it’s placebo or not if the pain is relieved and duration is shortened? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider guesses the answer is “not likely”. Ottawa migraine sufferers are invited to try the Ottawa chiropractic manipulation The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers called Cox Technic for relief.
