Dr. Butwells October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



Georgetown knee pain is a pain that Dr. Butwell sees often. Pain meds and surgical options are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is showing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Georgetown back pain and neck pain relief - were customized for use with knee pain. They proved successful in easing knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients had any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Check out a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Dr. Butwell’s Georgetown chiropractic care! Georgetown knee pain sufferers are welcomed to feel this gentle, relieving Georgetown knee pain treatment!


Georgetown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Georgetown elder folks gain even more. A new article reports that people with chronic low back pain usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Dr. Butwell agrees as these two are seen often in this Georgetown chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Dr. Butwell will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do in the convenience of your own home alongside the Georgetown chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to experience such relief yourself.
