“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.
GROWING SUPPORT FOR CHRONIC LBP RELIEF WITH COX® TECHNIC
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.
SPINAL MANIPULATION BETTER FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN…REGARDLESS
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
