Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t choosy. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for helping back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and military/veteran care systems. The newer curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc follows this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Fort Wayne back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Fort Wayne chiropractic care is made to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact get low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases 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 just primary care. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees these same outcomes for our Fort Wayne back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer occurrences of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a threefold bonus for Fort Wayne back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans experience back pain and get relief with chiropractic treatment. 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 found in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was inserted into 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 Fort Wayne chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is prepared to provide that!
