The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t choosy. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world people, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Colorado Springs back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will get back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Colorado Springs chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and multiplies their doctor visits. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care alone. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees these same outcomes for our Colorado Springs back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter 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 for Colorado Springs back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans experience back pain and get relief with chiropractic treatment. 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 sets out to see if low dose (1 to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is optimal 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 goal of Colorado Springs chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is prepared to provide that!
