Benefit of Spinal Manipulation for Chronic West Palm Beach Back Pain Relief

“Chronic” – not a term associated with good or happiness, is it? Chronic low back pain is long-lasting back pain that lasts over 3 months that just will not stop. Chiropractic Care welcomes frustrated, hurting chronic low back pain patients of all ages. Our gentle West Palm Beach chiropractic service is often relieving, offering hope for a more comfortable day.


Chiropractic researchers and everyday clinical practitioners like your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care witness the relief of pain and return of function. Some publish their results for everyone to see! A newly published case report of a 67 year old male veteran dealing with chronic low back pain and pain extending down his right leg occasionally recorded relief with Cox® Technic care. The patient reported dealing with this pain for decades. In 4 weeks and 4 visits of flexion distraction treatment along with moist heat and soft-tissue mobilization, he described improvement in his condition, less pain medication usage, and better mobility. (1) That’s a welcome result for this back pain sufferer!

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

Chronic low back pain like that explained by the veteran in this case report is quite common and can be quite disabling. Spinal manipulation is recommended for the management of chronic low back in many guidelines backed 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 consequence of repeated nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is thought to play a role in chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s benefit may well stem from its influence on this sensitization. (4) That is an advantage chronic back pain sufferers can tolerate.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation treatment for chronic low back pain reported 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 drawn: spinal manipulation should be considered a beneficial 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 Chiropractic Care studied extra in the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust form of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well know for its care of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain in addition to more common spinal pain conditions.
