The study concluded that chiropractic does good for the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with a long history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her overall care approach. Most recently, she suffered with neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years earlier. Furthermore, she had knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her lifetime, depression, opioid dependence, and minimal quality of life. After 6 months of chiropractic care which included manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise recommendations, she reported improvement in pain and quality of life as well as cessation of opioid pain medications.

Though third-party payers like to restrict coverage for chiropractic care, visiting a chiropractor on a more frequent basis for “maintenance care” is advantageous. A new study compared patients who got chiropractic care for bothersome low back pain more often to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a regular basis was more effective in lessening the overall number of days yearly that patients suffered bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients had more chiropractic appointments, but they experienced less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
