Vancouver Disc Centers 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 people or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and military/veteran care systems. The newer curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Vancouver Disc Centers keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Vancouver back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will experience back pain at some time 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) Vancouver chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact get low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases 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 primary care only. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers witnesses these same outcomes for our Vancouver back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter 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 triple bonus with Vancouver chiropractic care for 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 care. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly 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 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 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 involves chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The goal of Vancouver chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Vancouver Disc Centers is prepared to deliver that!
