Pflugerville Wellness Center Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for aiding back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The newer interest has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Pflugerville back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will get back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Pflugerville chiropractic care is made to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often curbs their independence and multiplies the number of doctor visits they have. A study that combined 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center sees these same outcomes for our Pflugerville back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer occurrences of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a triple bonus for Pflugerville back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and experience 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 (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management documented 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 with low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The aim of Pflugerville chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center is prepared to deliver that!
