March 13, 2024

Chiropractic can help chronic low back pain in pain relief, healthcare coordination, and in cost-of-care reduction. Chiropractic care first works to prevent back pain from becoming chronic, limiting its lasting over 3 months. Chiropractic care provides spinal manipulation therapy which is documented to help alleviate chronic low back pain and help coordination of care with other colleagues to help our patients best. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers facilitates the care of Baton Rouge chronic back pain patients cost-effecitvely using gentle, safe, research-recorded protocols of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. We’re here for you!


Back pain isn’t inexpensive. With the cost of spine pain in the US estimated to be $134.5 billion (1), Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is pretty sure that our chiropractic patients would welcome cost-effective care. A recent Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system reported that they accounted for almost 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper published results revealing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also experienced lower costs and healthcare services compared with medical management. (1) We know our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would like coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare professionals to get the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together benefit patients suffering with Baton Rouge back and other spine-related conditions. A study in South Africa looked at the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Interesting outcomes! Each profession assessed the other’s in terms of what conditions it treated, what modalities it utilized, how well each did at helping neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Interprofessional referrals for chiropractors were 82% and 55% for physiotherapists though 69% of chiropractors and 55% of physiotherapists wanted to collaborate in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor strives to keep our patients in the center of  a treatment plan to reduce their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months that leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare usage, 12 sessions of spinal manipulation offered greater pain relief than a control intervention.  (4) Another study of 1000 low back pain sufferers treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction protocols also reported that a mean of 12 visits in 29 days delivered maximum clinical improvement. Plus, fewer than 9% of the low back pain patients continued to the chronic phase. (5) Chronic pain prevention is a worthy effort!
