Cross Chiropractic Center Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The newer interest has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Cross Chiropractic Center keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Sandy Springs back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Sandy Springs chiropractic care is made to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly experience low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases the number of doctor visits they have. A study that combined chiropractic and primary care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center sees these same outcomes for our Sandy Springs back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also experience other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer episodes of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus with Sandy Springs chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and experience relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is optimal for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management discovered in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (5)) A related finding was made when chiropractic care was inserted into usual medical care for active-duty military personnel with low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that involves chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The goal of Sandy Springs chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Cross Chiropractic Center is prepared to provide that!
