“Chronic” – not a term that sounds very happy or good, is it? Chronic low back pain is on-going
back pain that goes
on for more than 3 months that just won’t stop.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic invites aggravated, hurting chronic
low back pain sufferers of all ages. Our gentle Fort Wayne
chiropractic service is often pain-lessening, delivering
hope for a more comfortable day.
GROWING SUPPORT FOR CHRONIC LBP RELIEF WITH COX® TECHNIC
Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners
like your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic witness
the relief of pain and return of function.
Some publish their outcomes for everyone to see! A recently
published case report of a 67 year old male veteran dealing with
chronic low back pain and occasional right leg pain recorded relief with Cox®
Technic treatment. The patient described having this pain for decades. After 4 visits in 4 weeks undergoing flexion distraction treatment along
with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he reported
improvement in his condition, reduced pain medication usage,
and enhanced mobility. (1) That’s a welcome outcome
for this back pain sufferer!
WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Help
Chronic low back pain like that explained by
the veteran in this case report is quite common and
can be very disabling. Spinal manipulation is endorsed
for the management of chronic low back in quite a few
guidelines supported 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 repeated nerve
stimulation has on the central nervous system - is thought to play a role in chronicity of pain. Spinal manipulation’s advantage
may well stem from its impact on this sensitization.
(4) That’s an advantage chronic back pain
sufferers can live with.
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 care
for chronic low back pain described that spinal manipulation
created similar effects to other suggested
therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was superior
to non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and
had limited, mild-to-moderate, passing adverse
effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis determined that spinal
manipulation appeared to be a good option for relief
of pain and improvement of function
for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis of specifically older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low
back pain sufferers, the same deductions were found:
spinal manipulation should be thought to be a positive
treatment for the older chronic low back pain sufferer for pain relief and function improvement. (7) Most spinal manipulation is rendered
by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and
Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Aaron 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 care of disc herniation and spinal
stenosis pain in addition to more common spinal
