Vancouver Chiropractic Care of Chronic Low Back Pain Can Help Reduce Cost & Pain

Chiropractic can help chronic low back pain in pain relief, healthcare coordination, and in cost-of-care reduction. Chiropractic care first aims to avert back pain from becoming chronic, keeping it from continuing to last over 3 months. Chiropractic care provides spinal manipulation therapy which is shown to help ease chronic low back pain and enhance coordination of care with other health professionals to help our patients best. Vancouver Disc Centers facilitates the care of Vancouver chronic back pain patients cost-effecitvely utilizing gentle, safe, research-documented protocols of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. We are ready to help!


Back pain isn’t cheap. With the cost of spine pain in the US valued to be $134.5 billion (1), Vancouver Disc Centers is pretty sure that our chiropractic patients would be happy with cost-effective care. A recent Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system found that they accounted for almost 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper published results revealing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also had lower costs and healthcare services compared with medical management. (1) We know our Vancouver chiropractic patients would like coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare providers to get the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together help patients suffering with Vancouver back and other spine pain conditions. A study in South Africa evaluated the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Interesting outcomes! Each profession evaluated the other’s in terms of what conditions it treated, what modalities it used, how well each did at treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Interprofessional referrals for chiropractors were 82% and 55% for physiotherapists though 69% of chiropractors and 55% of physiotherapists wanted to work together in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) We healthcare providers strive to keep our patients in the center of  the treatment plan to reduce their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months that leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare care, 12 sessions of spinal manipulation delivered greater pain relief than a control intervention.  (4) Another study of 1000 low back pain sufferers treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction protocols also showed that a mean of 12 visits in 29 days produced maximum clinical improvement. Plus, fewer than 9% of the low back pain patients entered the chronic phase. (5) Preventing chronic pain is a commendable effort!
