We see many low back pain patients in Springfield, it is perhaps the most common complaint seen in the US today. Low back pain can be brought on by a variety of different causes from liefstyle, to work to injury and simple degeneration due to age or genetics. The good news is we can treat the pain and help you better manage your life or even eradicate it.
Through a variety of treatments and modalities, we can help with your low back pain. Chiropractic care is about the best conservative treatment there is available and patient outcomes are so much greater compared to medicines for example. The Spine Journal suggests that 56% of patients who saw a medical doctor reported a 30% reduction of pain four weeks later. In contrast 94% of patients saw the same reduction in pain over the same time frame. Close to double.
However, chiropractic care is still not thought of as the first point of call considering the reported figures of just 40% going to a chiro instead of their primary doctor. Yet the same source (Chiodo, A.E. et al) says that 90% of low back pain episodes are cleared up within 6 weeks.
Fortunately, states are beginning to see the benefits in chiropractic care. Virginia recently has implemented a bill that says patients must have a series of chiropractic adjustments or physical therapy before any prescription medication can be prescribed. This is a great way to attack the opioid crisis. And all insurance companies in that state must also cover a minimum of a dozen visits.
Chiropractic is arguably the best conservative treatment for low back pain.
Two other areas of treatment include accupuncture and massage therapy. Both have many different techniques within their own niches and both can significantly help with low back pain in Springfield.
