Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

January 05, 2021

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for aiding back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent interest has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Baton Rouge back pain!


80% of us will get back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly experience 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 merged primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care only. (2) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers witnesses these same outcomes for our Baton Rouge back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who utilized only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer 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 triple bonus with Baton Rouge chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and experience 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 seeks to see if low dose (1 to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 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 with low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain intensity and disability was documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The aim of Baton Rouge chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is prepared to provide that!
