Baton Rouge chronic pain experienced by an individual makes him/her a member of a group s/he didn’t really plan  to join.

Chiropractors like your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation see Baton Rouge patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain daily. A recent study of 2,024 chiropractic patients in the US documented that, as a group, these chronic pain patients experienced significant improvement in their health-related quality of life over time, especially for pain. The study ended with the conclusion that chiropractic benefits the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that integrated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her whole care approach. Most recently, she suffered with 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 minimal quality of life. After 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain as well as nutrition and exercise suggestions, she described improvement in pain and quality of life plus discontinuation of opioid pain medications.

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation enjoys seeing Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ joy when this occurs.


Though third-party payers like to restrict coverage for chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor on an on-going basis for “maintenance care” is effective. A new study compared patients who obtained 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 reducing the overall number of days yearly that patients had bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients had more chiropractic visits, but they reported less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
