A recent high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is safe for older adults suffering with back pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR appreciates this confirmation! How did they do this? The systematic review of all published articles over a 7 year period updated current recommendations. Thirty-seven panelists contributed to this best practices guidelinesupdate and review. In the end, they agreed on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the current statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel inserted two additional notes of advice that (1) chiropractors should suggest exercise to back pain patients who are older and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR agrees! Colorado Springs chiropractic patients often look for care to eliminate their back pain.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses is known as Cox Technic. From the research studies concerning this approach, it’s known that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) respond better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that recurs several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recognizes that exercise is crucial to control back pain and prevent future back pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR urges all our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients to help themselves with exercise.
