Chiropractors like your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic care for McHenry patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain all the time. A recent study of 2,024 chiropractic patients in the US documented that, as a group, these chronic pain patients experienced significant improvement in their health-related quality of life over time, especially for pain. The study ended with the conclusion that chiropractic furthers the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain discovered relief when chiropractic care was added to her overall care approach. Most recently, she suffered with neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years prior. Furthermore, she noted knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and minimal quality of life. At 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise suggestions, she reported improvement in pain and quality of life as well as discontinuation of opioid pain medications.

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic enjoys seeing McHenry chiropractic patients’ joy when this occurs.


Though third-party payers like to limit coverage for chiropractic care, visiting a chiropractor on a recurring basis for “maintenance care” is helpful. A new study compared patients who got chiropractic care for annoying low back pain on a consistent basis to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms appeared. Chiropractic care on a regular basis was more effective in decreasing the total number of days in a year that patients experienced bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients made more chiropractic appointments, but they reported less back pain. The researchers concluded that maintenance care be taken into consideration a low back pain prevention option.
