Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Ashburn back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Ashburn chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often limits their independence and multiplies the number of doctor visits they have. A study that merged chiropractic and primary care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care alone. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn witnesses these same outcomes for our Ashburn back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had lower overall costs of care, shorter episodes of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a triple bonus with Ashburn chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and get relief with chiropractic care. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A recently proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is optimal for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management discovered in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to get patients maximally improved. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that incorporates chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The aim of Ashburn chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is prepared to provide that!
