Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not choosy. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for relieving back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent interest has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Baton Rouge back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Baton Rouge chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often curbs their independence and increases their doctor visits. A study that merged primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care only. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees these same outcomes for our Baton Rouge back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter episodes of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a triple bonus for Baton Rouge back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and experience relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (1 to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management documented in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to get patients maximally improved. (5)) A related finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain intensity and disability was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The goal of Baton Rouge chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is prepared to provide that!
