with good or happiness, is it? Chronic low back pain is long-lasting
back pain that goes
on for more than 3 months that just won’t quit.

low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle Tonawanda
chiropractic service is often pain-lessening, bringing
hope for a better day ahead.
GROWING SUPPORT FOR CHRONIC LBP RELIEF WITH COX® TECHNIC
Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners
like your Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation witness
the relief of pain and return of function.
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.
SPINAL MANIPULATION BETTER FOR CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN…REGARDLESS
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
