Spinal Care Clinic Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not choosy. Back pain may find any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military people or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Spinal Care Clinic keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Burlington and Hamilton back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care is made to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly get low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases the number of doctor visits they have. A study that combined chiropractic and primary care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Spinal Care Clinic sees these same outcomes for our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also experience other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter occurrences of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus with Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and get relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A recently proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain sets out to see if low dose (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is optimal for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management found in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to get patients maximally improved. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was inserted into usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The goal of Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Spinal Care Clinic is prepared to deliver that!
