Benefit of Spinal Manipulation for Chronic Murfreesboro Back Pain Relief

“Chronic” – not a term associated with good or happiness, is it? Chronic low back pain is long-lasting back pain that lasts over 3 months that just won’t stop. Most Chiropractic Clinic invites frustrated, hurting chronic low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle Murfreesboro chiropractic service is often relieving, offering hope for a better day ahead.


Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners like your Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic witness the pain relief and function improvement. Some publish their outcomes for everyone to see! A newly published case report of a 67 year old male veteran coping with chronic low back pain and pain extending down his right leg occasionally described relief with Cox® Technic care. The patient described experiencing this pain for decades. After 4 visits in 4 weeks undergoing flexion distraction treatment together with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he reported improvement in his condition, decreased pain medication use, and better mobility. (1) That’s a welcome result for this back pain sufferer!

WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Help

Chronic low back pain like that described by the veteran in this case report is quite common and can be quite disabling. Spinal manipulation is endorsed for the management of chronic low back in many guidelines backed by such groups as the American Pain Society and the American College of Pain Physicians. (2,3) With chronic low back pain, central sensitization – the consequence of repetitive nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is thought to contribute to chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s advantage may well come from its impact on this sensitization. (4) That’s an advantage chronic back pain sufferers can tolerate.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation treatment for chronic low back pain described that spinal manipulation generated similar effects to other recommended therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was better than non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and had limited, mild-to-moderate, momentary adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis concluded that spinal manipulation looked to be a good option for pain relief and function improvement for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis particularly focused on older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low back pain sufferers, the same conclusions were reported: spinal manipulation should be considered a beneficial treatment for the older patient with chronic low back pain to relieve pain and improve function. (7) Most spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Most Chiropractic Clinic studied extra in the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust type of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well recognized for its treatment of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain in addition to more routine spinal pain conditions.
