Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Chronic Low Back Pain Can Help Reduce Cost & Pain

March 13, 2024

Chiropractic can help chronic low back pain in pain relief, healthcare coordination, and in cost-of-care reduction. Chiropractic care first aims to stop back pain from becoming chronic, limiting its lasting over 3 months. Chiropractic care offers spinal manipulation therapy which is documented to help ease chronic low back pain and help cooperation with other health professionals to help our patients best. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps the care of Fort Wayne chronic back pain patients economically using gentle, safe, research-documented protocols of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. We’re ready for you!


Back pain isn’t inexpensive. With the cost of spine pain in the US estimated to be $134.5 billion (1), Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is pretty sure that our chiropractic patients would be happy with cost-effective care. A recent Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system found that they accounted for nearly 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper published results revealing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also had reduced costs and healthcare services when compared to medical management. (1) We know our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients would appreciate coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare professionals to get the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together help patients dealing with Fort Wayne back and other spine pain conditions. A study in South Africa looked at the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Interesting outcomes! Each profession assessed the other’s with regards to what conditions it treated, what modalities it used, 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 work together in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) We healthcare providers want to keep our patients in the center of  the treatment plan to reduce their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months and usually leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare care, 12 sessions of spinal manipulation offered 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 entered the chronic phase. (5) Chronic pain prevention is a worthy effort!
