The study ended with the conclusion that chiropractic furthers the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain discovered relief when chiropractic care was added to her whole care approach. Most recently, she experienced neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years earlier. Furthermore, she noted knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and low quality of life. At 6 months of chiropractic care which included manipulation for neck and back pain as well as nutrition and exercise suggestions, she stated improvement in pain and quality of life plus cessation of opioid pain medications.

Though third-party payers like to restrict coverage for chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor on a recurring basis for “maintenance care” is advantageous. A new study compared patients who got chiropractic care for annoying low back pain regularly to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a regular basis was more effective in decreasing the total number of days annually that patients experienced bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients made more chiropractic appointments, but they experienced less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be taken into consideration a low back pain prevention option.
