Maintenance and the Road to Spine Health

Maintenance keeps patients on the road to spine health.  Good posture with regular maintenance treatment can help everyone and is recommended after treatment for injuries, flare ups or chronic conditions.

The University of Quebec conducted and published a study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.  The study had patients receive intensive therapy for their injury or flair up, specifically involving low back pain.  The study had two groups.  The first group had intensive therapy followed with monthly maintenance treatments. The second group had intensive therapy.  The results showed that the patients who received the maintenance program maintained their post-intensive therapy pain and disability levels.  The patients who did not receive the maintenance program did not maintain the post-intensive therapy disability levels.  The researchers concluded that the results seem to indicate that regular follow up treatment may be of benefit to patients.

Recommendation for Maintenance

Here at Spine Intelligence and the Healing Chiropractic Center of Dr. Jacques Bendavid, we encourage patients to schedule regular appointments to promote their spine health.
