That’s where regular chiropractic care comes into play. Certainly our Carrolltown chiropractic patients know that chiropractic care relieves back pain and neck pain and related extremity pain like arm and leg pain. They also understand that they do not want to suffer with that pain again!

These outcomes may well facilitate patients’ and doctors’ realistically temper their expectations of care. Maintenance care is not a cure, does not stop new episodes necessarily, but it is a plan to decrease life-routine disrupting pain for back pain sufferers with recurrent and persistent low back pain.
