Benefit of Spinal Manipulation for Chronic New Roads Back Pain Relief

“Chronic” – not a term that sounds very happy or good, is it? Chronic low back pain is on-going back pain of at least 3 months’ duration that just will not quit. New Roads Chiropractic Center welcomes aggravated, hurting chronic low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle New Roads chiropractic service is often pain-lessening, bringing hope for a better day ahead.


Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners like your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center see the pain relief and function improvement. Some publish their results for all to see! A newly published case report of a 67 year old male veteran dealing with chronic low back pain and occasional right leg pain described relief with Cox® Technic care. The patient described experiencing this pain for decades. After 4 visits in 4 weeks undergoing flexion distraction treatment together with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he described improvement in his condition, reduced pain medication use, and better mobility. (1) That is a welcome outcome for this back pain sufferer!

WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Help

Chronic low back pain like that explained by the veteran in this case report is quite common and can be quite distressing. Spinal manipulation is recommended for the management of chronic low back in many guidelines supported by such groups as the American Pain Society and the American College of Pain Physicians. (2,3) With chronic low back pain, central sensitization – the effect of repetitive nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is purported to contribute to chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s advantage may well stem from its effect on this sensitization. (4) That is a benefit chronic back pain sufferers can live with.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation care for chronic low back pain reported that spinal manipulation generated similar effects to other suggested therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was better than non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and had limited, mild-to-moderate, momentary adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis concluded that spinal manipulation appeared to be a good alternative for pain relief and function improvement for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis specifically focused on older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low back pain sufferers, the same conclusions were found: spinal manipulation should be considered a positive treatment for the older chronic low back pain sufferer for pain relief and function improvement. (7) Most spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center researched and learned more about the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust form of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well recognized for its care of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain as well as more common spinal pain conditions.
