Spine & Sports Rehab Center Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world people, active military folks or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for relieving 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center follows this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Baton Rouge back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic care is designed 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 described as being 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees these same outcomes for our Baton Rouge back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had lower overall costs of care, briefer episodes of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus with Baton Rouge chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans experience back pain and experience relief with chiropractic care. 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 (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management documented 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 added to 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 incorporates 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is prepared to deliver that!
