Some publish their outcomes for all to see! A recently published case report of a 67 year old male veteran dealing with chronic low back pain and occasional right leg pain recorded relief with Cox® Technic care. The patient described having this pain for decades. After 4 visits in 4 weeks undergoing flexion distraction treatment together with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he stated improvement in his condition, reduced pain medication usage, and enhanced mobility. (1) That’s a welcome outcome for this back pain sufferer!

WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Help

Chronic low back pain like that described by the veteran in this case report is very prevalent and can be quite disabling. Spinal manipulation is endorsed for the management of chronic low back in several guidelines backed by such groups as the American Pain Society and the American College of Pain Physicians. (2,3) With chronic low back pain, central sensitization – the consequence of repetitive nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is thought to play a role in chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s advantage may well stem from its influence on this sensitization. (4) That’s a benefit chronic back pain sufferers can tolerate.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation treatment for chronic low back pain reported that spinal manipulation created similar effects to other suggested therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was better than non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and had limited, mild-to-moderate, momentary adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis determined that spinal manipulation appeared to be a good alternative for pain relief and function improvement for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis of specifically older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low back pain sufferers, the same deductions were found: spinal manipulation should be thought to be a beneficial treatment for the older chronic low back pain sufferer to relieve pain and improve function. (7) Most spinal manipulation is delivered by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation studied extra in the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust type of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well know for its treatment of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain in addition to more usual spinal pain conditions.
