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

Chronic low back pain like that explained by the veteran in this case report is very prevalent and can be very disabling. Spinal manipulation is recommended for the management of chronic low back in quite a few 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 benefit may well stem from its effect on this sensitization. (4) That’s an advantage chronic back pain sufferers can accept.


A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (47 RCTs and 9211 participants) of spinal manipulation care for chronic low back pain stated that spinal manipulation created similar effects to other recommended therapies of chronic low back pain (like exercise and drug therapy), was superior to non-recommended intervention for short-term improvement, and had limited, mild-to-moderate, fleeting adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis determined that spinal manipulation appeared to be a good option for pain relief and function improvement for chronic low back pain sufferers. (6) In a meta-analysis specifically 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 Novelli Wellness Center studied extra in the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust type 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.
