YOUR CHIROPRACTIC SPINE PAIN PRACTITIONER: Lessen Pain, Reduce Opioid Prescription Fills, Improve Quality of Life

Chiropractic care is hands-on treatment appreciated by clients for its non-pharmacologic and non-surgical foundation. In a healthcare system that is structured for the inclusion of non-pharmacologic treatment modalities including chiropractic – the Veteran’s Healthcare Administrationusual medical care plus chiropractic care for patients with low back pain was reported as beneficial. There was a significant difference in the results of usual medical care compared with usual medical care plus chiropractic care in higher quality of life scoring as well as pain-related disability with chiropractic care. (1) In the Medicare system, older beneficiaries with spinal pain who utilized chiropractic care were at significantly reduced risk – 56% lower – of filling an opioid prescription. (2) Since 2011, a new role to deal with spine-related pain, back pain, radiculopathy, etc., was offered, the Primary Spine Practitioner. Integrating such care into the healthcare system is meant to improve effectiveness and value of care as high costs and poor outcomes are common in spine care. (3) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows the spine, the conservative care of its pain, and the value of working with other healthcare practitioners to get you the pain relief we all desire for you!

Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc presents a new study highlighting the benefit of adding at-home exercise to in-office treatment for neck pain relief.


Blending efforts, whether it is it between your healthcare providers or between your at-home care and your in-office treatment, is important. In dealing with back pain or neck pain, mixing treatment at the office with exercise at home is beneficial. The recent report of such a combination found that four 20-minute sessions of manual therapy and exercise plus an at-home exercise program was more effective than without manual therapy for neck pain sufferers. The patients’ range of motion got better as did their neck disability and pain intensity. (4) Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients report further benefit when they are involved in their care.
