Another Happy Chiropractic Patient

Thanks for another round of outstanding services. When I walked in on Monday morning I was experiencing significant neck pain and dramatic decrease in flexibility (couldn't turn my head). One treatment put me 85% of the way back. It's now Tuesday and I feel even better. Looking forward to my treatment on Thursday. I expect that will do it.
I'm 51 years old and still quite active. The aches and pains from running, strength training, and dance send me to Lyn Lake Chiropractic 2-3 times per year. The treatment is always first rate, professional, and effective. If you want to feel better, do yourself a favor and come to Lyn Lake Chiropractic!

The “real life” issue for the patient who either wakes up with this debilitating pain or is in an accident that causes it, is that taking drugs without narcotics is insufficient for relieving the pain. With the narcotics, one can be severely hampered and may not be able to go about his/her life. It is often a double-edged sword; take strong drugs and compromise your life or don't take drugs, receive no chiropractic care and suffer.
A 2006 study examined "...the extent to which a group of patients with acute neck pain managed with chiropractic [adjustments]...and the degree to which they were subsequently satisfied...A total of 115 patients were contacted, of whom 94 became study participants, resulting in 60 women (64%) and 34 men. The mean age was 39.6 years...The mean number of visits was 24.5...Pain levels improved significantly from a mean of 7.6...before treatment to 1.9...after treatment...The overall patient satisfaction rate was 94%" (Haneline, 2006, p. 288).
"There were reductions in disability recorded during the study that were statistically significant. Approximately 84% of the patients related that their activities were restricted before chiropractic treatment because of their neck pain, whereas only 25% still had activity restrictions at the time of the interview. Furthermore, 57% of those with physical restrictions described their disabilities as moderately severe or greater before treatment, whereas at the time of the interview, just 12% did (Haneline, 2006, p. 294).
"When comparing trauma with no-trauma cases, Trauma cases received more than 3 times as many visits. This difference may be related to tissue damage that often accompanies trauma, which, many times, heals imperfectly. In addition, patients with this type of problem may have ensuing long-term pain and physical impairment, which further shows that trauma complicates the recovery of acute neck pain (Haneline, 2006, p. 294).
This study along with many others concludes that a drug-free approach of chiropractic care is one of the best solutions to acute neck pain and returning to a normal life.
Lyn Lake Chiropractic would like to share this research with you since we see a great deal of neck pain. Many patients come in with pain neck especially when they wake up with neck pain.
