Benefit of Spinal Manipulation for Chronic Fernandina Beach Back Pain Relief

“Chronic” – not a term that sounds very happy or good, is it? Chronic low back pain is long-lasting back pain that goes on for more than 3 months that just won’t quit. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic invites aggravated, hurting chronic low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle Fernandina Beach chiropractic service is often relieving, offering hope for a better day ahead.


Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners like your Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic witness the pain relief and function improvement. Some publish their outcomes for all to see! A newly published case report of a 67 year old male veteran coping with chronic low back pain and occasional right leg pain documented relief with Cox® Technic care. The patient described experiencing this pain for decades. In 4 weeks and 4 visits of flexion distraction treatment along with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he detailed improvement in his condition, less pain medication use, and enhanced mobility. (1) That’s a welcome outcome for this back pain sufferer!

WHAT’S UP WITH CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN? Spinal Manipulation’s Role

Chronic low back pain like that described by the veteran in this case report is very common and can be quite distressing. Spinal manipulation is recommended for the management of chronic low back in several guidelines supported by such groups as the American Pain Society and the American College of Pain Physicians. (2,3) With chronic low back pain, central sensitization – the effect of repeated nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is thought to play a role in chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s advantage may well come from its influence on this sensitization. (4) That is a benefit chronic back pain sufferers can live with.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation treatment for chronic low back pain described that spinal manipulation produced similar effects to other recommended therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was better than non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and had limited, mild-to-moderate, momentary adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis concluded that spinal manipulation looked to be a good option for pain relief and function improvement for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis particularly focused on older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low back pain sufferers, the same deductions were found: spinal manipulation should be considered a positive treatment for the older patient with chronic low back pain for pain relief and function improvement. (7) Most spinal manipulation is rendered by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic researched and learned more about the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust form of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well recognized for its treatment of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain as well as more common spinal pain conditions.
