Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Shares Your 2024 Goal of Relief of Back Pain

December 26, 2023

A new goal for the new goal. We all aim for something new in a new year. For Fort Wayne back pain patients, a decrease in back pain is a reasonable goal with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc by your side. Back pain sufferers may feel alone, but they aren’t, and research continues to produce and share hopeful reports of what does work so that both the back pain sufferer and the chiropractor - and other involved healthcare providers – provide the optimal attention for the optimal outcome: less back pain. Start 2024 off right with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc’s help for back pain relief! We have lots of effective chiropractic services


They run the gamut. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc hears about them all the time. Everyone from friends, family members, researchers, doctors, etc., have ideas and stories. In light of the wide range of back pain care recommendations, researchers propose that the standardization of care for back pain - exercise, spinal manipulation and opioid prescriptions – that may benefit back pain sufferers best. (1) We agree. We review the research and combine it with our clinical experience to develop an individualized treatment plan for our back pain patients. With the expected growth of low back pain through 2050 – from 619 million people globally to more than 800 million (2) – effective, research-documented, non-drug, non-surgical choices for back pain are welcome, particularly ones that are tested and documented to be beneficial.  A recent paper was just published regarding the care for a specific type of back pain - continued back pain after back surgery known as failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) - that often develops into continued or increased opioid pain medication use.  The study stated that FBSS patients treated with Cox® Flexion Distraction Decompression Manipulation experienced decreased or discontinued use of opioids during an initial 3-month course of treatment. (3) That’s an encouraging outcome of a treatment approach to include in the standardized back pain treatment recommendations!


So what can our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients do to limit their back pain and its impact on their lives? Sleep. Keep active. Makes their appointments for spinal manipulation. Feedback from 2333 back pain sufferers noted that additional sleep, less sedentariness, and increased moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity was beneficial. The authors described an example of how swapping 30 minutes of sedentary behavior for 30 minutes of sleep decreased low back pain frequency odds by 5% and pain intensity by 2%. Sleep is important! (4) So too is a visit to the Fort Wayne chiropractor for spinal manipulation as recommended in the guidelines published by the American College of Physicians and The American Pain Society as having good evidence of effectiveness for low back pain along with exercise, CBT, and rehabilitation. (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is experienced in providing gentle, safe spinal manipulation via Cox® Technic protocols, designing an easy exercise plan, and referring out for therapy and/or more advance rehab as needed or wanted. Trust us to help! Our Fort Wayne back pain patients are in good hands.
