Back Pain

Preventing and relieving pain with a more holistic approach

The Cost of Chronic Pain

Lower back pain is a widespread, common condition costing the U.S. an estimated $100 billion each year. Because of the enormous costs of treating chronic pain, preventative care is an integral part of treatment for this condition. Our holistic preventative approach includes physiotherapy which can help you strengthen muscles and learn how to relieve pain and prevent further injury. 

Accessing chiropractic care early can have a lasting positive effect on improving your chronic pain in your back and neck and reducing its severity over time, but it is never too late to start getting the care you need. 

Research-Backed Relief

Studies consistently highlight the efficacy of spinal manipulation in chiropractic care for alleviating chronic back and neck pain while improving patients’ mobility and overall well-being (Source).

Additionally, extensive research underscores the importance of integrating maintenance chiropractic treatments into healthcare regimens, offering sustained relief and proactive measures to prevent recurring issues and future injury. These findings reinforce the invaluable role of chiropractic care in promoting long-term health and quality of life.

I had had chronic pain in my lower back for two years before going in to see Dr. Alexander, and my only regret is that I didn’t go in sooner. I tried massage and physical therapy to no avail. What I learned is that a holistic approach, like the one Dr. Alexander offers, combining chiropractic treatments with physical therapy, is the key. My pain has been alleviated, and if I do have a twinge now and then, I know how to help myself.

The Power of Maintenance Sessions

One study on chronic pain treatment studied thirty patients experiencing pain in the lower back without any prior treatment. Group 1 received intensive chiropractic treatment for one month, while Group 2 had the same treatment with the addition of maintenance sessions every three weeks for nine months. While both groups showed reduced pain levels, only Group 2, receiving ongoing care, sustained improvement in disability scores over the entire nine-month period.

The following graph illustrates the differences between the two groups on disability levels:
