Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centerss Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care Eases Chronic Back and Neck Pain

October 30, 2018

Chronic pain. Opioid use. Life change. Adding chiropractic care helps these issues for many Baton Rouge low back pain and Baton Rouge neck pain patients. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers gives pain-relieving and opioid-use risk-reducing treatment that may return a neck pain or back pain patient to an enjoyable life with less pain.


Baton Rouge chronic pain experienced by an individual makes him/her part of a group s/he did not really plan  to join. Chronic pain, pain that goes on for more than three months, affects a Baton Rouge pain sufferers’ quality of life as well as that of those around him/her. This is where chiropractic comes into play. Chiropractors like your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers see Baton Rouge patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain all the time. A recent study of 2,024 chiropractic patients in the US documented that, as a group, these chronic pain patients found significant improvement in their health-related quality of life over time, especially for pain. The study ended with the conclusion that chiropractic furthers the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her whole care approach. Most recently, she suffered with neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years prior. Furthermore, she had knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and minimal quality of life. At 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise recommendations, she described improvement in pain and quality of life along with cessation of opioid pain medications.

Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers enjoys seeing Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ joy when this occurs.


Though third-party payers like to limit coverage for chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor on a more frequent basis for “maintenance care” is useful. A new study compared patients who received chiropractic care for annoying low back pain more often to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a consistent basis was more effective in lessening the overall number of days yearly that patients experienced troubling low back pain. Yes, these patients made more chiropractic visits, but they had less back pain. The researchers recommended that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
