Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps alleviate back pain and leg pain gently and effectively with Cox Technic.


Having back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is unique compared with a time – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain or sciatica as a younger person. There is a variety of types of sciatica patients – those who have mild leg pain to those with high pain, disability and timeframe of being affected by it. Researchers found that most improvement for pain and disability occurred in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients reported recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica bothers about 25% of us. Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is more bothersome than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may also join the sciatic pain. The typical care possibilities are pain medications of all kinds from NSAIDS to opioids without much proof for their use. Additionally, most clinical trials for these meds in the management of sciatica actually exclude older people. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation implements a non-drug choice for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research evidence to support its use and documentation of its effectiveness for that life-changing encounter with back and sciatic pain.


Patients describe to researchers that “It has changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that persists beyond 3 months. Specifically, a new article clarifies that back pain sufferers articulate that it harms their sense of self, makes them feel like they are trapped in a body that just will not work any longer, complicates family relationships, keeps them working in pain, and makes them feel socially and recreationally repressed. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has witnessed this in its years of caring for Carrolltown back pain. Back pain disrupts life. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gives hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hears from Carrolltown back pain patients that even 50% relief would be really very gratifying, permitting them to return to their lives.
