BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAC Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMAC), a provider of innovative medical advancements and care specializing in regenerative rehabilitation orthopedic treatments without the use of surgery or opioids, today announced results from an extensive internal analysis of treatment outcomes for musculoskeletal conditions performed at IMAC Regeneration Centers, which showed approximately 81% of IMAC patients reported improvement in movement, which is consistent with the data measured over the past three years.
IMAC analyzed functional disabilities primarily affecting the knees, lower back, neck, shoulders, hips, legs and ankles. Data was collected from patients during initial examinations, re-examinations and at discharge intervals during patients’ course of care. IMAC examined patient functional improvement following treatment at IMAC Regeneration Centers between 2017 and the first quarter of 2021 utilizing standardized disability indexes.
A total of 875 patients with an average age of 72 years and receiving 80.7 days of treatment were evaluated with each patient receiving non-opioid medical treatments in combination with physical therapy. More than 81%, or 712, exhibited up to 79% improvement in functionality. For the study, 152 patients showed less than 1% change in functional ability, and only 11 patients regressed.
“This clinical data demonstrates that our non-opioid, non-surgical regenerative rehabilitation therapies improve recovery from movement restrictions and physical injuries. Our affordable services prove to be an effective, conservative care alternative for most people facing a joint replacement or spinal fusion surgery,” stated Jeff Ervin, Chief Executive Officer of IMAC. “Three consecutive years of measurable performance outcomes gives our medical team confidence when addressing degenerative orthopedic conditions for our patients.”
In IMAC’s analysis, the percentage of patients reporting improvement for each disability category was as follows: 81% of those treated for knee conditions, 80% of those treated for lower back conditions, 90% of those treated for neck conditions, 73% of those treated for shoulder conditions, 78% treated for hip conditions, 86% treated for leg conditions and 80% of those with ankle conditions. The average treatment duration was 80.87 days, and the average patient age was 72.2 years.
