Helping Carrolltown back pain patients get relief is what Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation does.  With such experience and confidence, do better outcomes develop for Carrolltown back pain patients at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation? Likely reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient anticipates a positive outcome from the care he or she is getting, the odds of a good outcome are increased. What about the preference for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s inclination  for treatment type impact the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s doesn’t as much. Very interesting! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief rose by 69.3 times when that back pain patient received care from a healthcare provider team which strongly preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method did not influence the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) Wow!

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has seen many Carrolltown back pain patients feel remarkable relief!


Adding non-surgical distraction therapy to the treatment of lumbar disc herniation aids the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks received electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. The patients improved. The pain and function improved along with a decrease in the size of the disc herniation. But those patients who also received the distraction therapy found more improvement. Their clinical and radiological evidence at the end of care was better. The disc herniation reduction was more evident in the patients with distraction therapy added to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees it all the time!
