Chiropractic for chronic low back pain enhances pain relief, healthcare coordination, and in cost-of-care reduction.

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn facilitates the care of Ashburn chronic back pain patients cost-effecitvely using gentle, safe, research-documented protocols of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. We’re ready for you!


Back pain is not inexpensive. With the cost of spine pain in the US estimated to be $134.5 billion (1), Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is pretty sure that our chiropractic patients would appreciate cost-effective care. A newer Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system reported that they accounted for almost 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper reported results revealing that spine-related pain patients who see a chiropractor initially also experienced reduced costs and healthcare services when compared to medical management. (1) We know our Ashburn chiropractic patients would appreciate coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare providers to receive the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together benefit patients suffering with Ashburn back and other spine pain conditions. A study in South Africa analyzed the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Interesting outcomes! Each profession evaluated the other’s with regards to what conditions it treated, what modalities it utilized, how well each did at helping neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Interprofessional referrals for chiropractors were 82% and 55% for physiotherapists though 69% of chiropractors and 55% of physiotherapists wanted to collaborate in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) We healthcare providers strive to keep our patients in the center of  a treatment plan to reduce their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months that leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare care, 12 sessions of spinal manipulation delivered greater pain relief than a control intervention.  (4) Another study of 1000 low back pain sufferers treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction protocols also showed that a mean of 12 visits in 29 days delivered maximum clinical improvement. Plus, less than 9% of the low back pain patients continued to the chronic phase. (5) Chronic pain prevention is a worthy effort!
