A recent high-level research review reiterates that spinal manipulation is a safe way to relieve back pain in older adults. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation appreciates this verification! How did they do this? Researchers reviewed all published articles from 7 years to update current recommendations.

In the end, they reached agreement on current statements regarding the best practices for chiropractic care of older adults with back pain. They strengthened the current statement about the safety of spinal manipulation for these patients. The panel added two supplementary recommendations that (1) chiropractors should advise exercise to these older adult back pain patients and (2) manipulation and mobilization do more than just reduce pain; they improve overall outcomes of care.

This chiropractic care starts with back pain relief. The spinal manipulation approach Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation employs is known as Cox Technic. In research studies concerning this approach, it’s published that radiculopathy (leg pain), chronic moderate/severe back pain and recurrent mild back pain (pain than comes and goes) react better to chiropractic Cox Technic than to medical conservative care. This study also documented that chronic/recurrent – back pain that returns several times a year – reacts better to exercise. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows exercise is important to manage back pain and prevent future back pain.
