Soft Health and Healing Clinic Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for relieving back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent interest has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic follows this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Brooks 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 due to back pain. (1) Brooks chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases their doctor visits. 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic witnesses these same outcomes for our Brooks back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also experience other medical issues who utilized only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had lower overall costs of care, briefer occurrences 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 Brooks back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and get relief with chiropractic care. 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 (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial 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 get patients maximally improved. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was inserted into usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain intensity and disability was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The aim of Brooks chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is prepared to deliver that!
