Chiropractic care is appropriate for low back pain (1), and that’s not just Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers’s opinion. This comes from published medical research! Chiropractic care helps relieve low back pain as well as related leg pain. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers offers Baton Rouge chiropractic care that is non-surgical, relieving, and gentle to Baton Rouge back pain sufferers no matter who they are!

An interesting statistic came in the spine research this week that orthopedic trauma surgeons experience low back pain as the number one work-related musculoskeletal disorder they experience themselves (more than 66% of them). What was the most common disorder? Low back pain (29.3%).  (2) Unfortunately, the report doesn’t share what those surgeons do for their low back pain. (Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers would welcome them right alongside all our other Baton Rouge low back pain patients!) Do they go to a fellow surgeon, or do they seek out spinal manipulation as published guidelines recommend?

So, understandably from your Baton Rouge chiropractor’s perspective and experience, published guidelines recommend spinal manipulation. The American Pain Society and the American College Of Physicians recommend spinal manipulation as primary care of low back pain. The guidelines further point out that other approaches are not effective (prolotherapy, facet joint injection, intradiscal steroid injection), short-lived (epidural steroid injections), moderately effective for post-surgical back pain (spinal cord stimulator), and beneficial short-term but not long term versus non-surgical care (surgery for herniated disc with radiculopathy).  (3) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers would hope that surgeons  would feel right at home with all of our other Baton Rouge low back pain patients. The relieving Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal manipulation treatment at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers doesn’t discriminate. It is here to help Baton Rouge low back pain sufferers.

Then this new consensus study just came out, too. It concludes that the reviewed evidence supports that concept that “doctors of chiropractic are well suited to diagnose, treat, co-manage, and manage the treatment of patients with low back pain disorders”. (1) For us chiropractors who see ourselves as back pain specialists, this is welcome news. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor feels up to the task of caring for the low back pain patient, acute or chronic, the leg patient patient, the neck pain patient, the arm pain patient. The chiropractic technique offered at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers, Cox Technic, is well documented, researched and evidence-based to address all of these issues. Its published results share the relief that patients of all sorts find whether they are post-surgical with continued pain or have chronic low back pain or acute low back pain. Baton Rouge chiropractic patients come from all walks of life.

Lastly, another study reveals that chiropractic is beneficial for military folks, too. Chiropractors are being integrated into the military and veteran health care facilities. As they are, it’s found that their collaboration in the care of these patients focuses on reducing morbidity and helping rehabilitate military personnel to full duty status. And the patient satisfaction is high with the chiropractic services. (4) Baton Rouge chiropractic patients express their satisfaction with the chiropractic care at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers everyday,too!
