YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Lessen Pain, Reduce Opioid Prescription Fills, Improve Quality of Life

Chiropractic care is hands-on care valued by clients for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is organized for the integration of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities including chiropractic – the Veteran’s Healthcare Administrationusual medical care plus chiropractic care for patients with low back pain was reported as beneficial. There was a significant difference in the results of usual medical care compared with usual medical care plus chiropractic care in better quality of life scoring as well as pain-related disability with chiropractic care. (1) In the Medicare system, older beneficiaries with spinal pain who used chiropractic care were at significantly reduced risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a novel role to deal with spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was offered, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Integrating such care into the healthcare system is intended to improve effectiveness and value of care because high costs and poor outcomes are common in spine care.

Pflugerville Wellness Center presents a new study highlighting the benefit of adding at-home exercise to in-office treatment for neck pain relief.


Blending efforts, be it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is important. In looking for relief of back pain or neck pain, combining treatment at the office with exercise at home is beneficial. The recent report of such a combination found that four 20-minute sessions of manual therapy and exercise plus an at-home exercise program was more effective than without manual therapy for neck pain sufferers. The patients’ range of motion improved as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Pflugerville back pain and neck pain patients report further benefit when they are involved in their care.
