Spengel Chiropractic Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for relieving back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The newer curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Spengel Chiropractic follows this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian McHenry back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will get back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) McHenry 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 the number of doctor visits they have. A study that merged chiropractic and primary care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Spengel Chiropractic sees these same outcomes for our McHenry back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer episodes of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a triple bonus for McHenry back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and experience 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 (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is optimal for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management discovered in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (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 documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that involves chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The aim of McHenry chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Spengel Chiropractic is prepared to provide that!
