At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her overall care approach. Most recently, she experienced neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years earlier. Additionally, she noted knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and low quality of life. After 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise suggestions, she reported improvement in pain and quality of life plus cessation of opioid pain medications.

A new study compared patients who obtained chiropractic care for troubling low back pain more often to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms appeared. Chiropractic care on a consistent basis was more effective in reducing the overall number of days yearly that patients experienced bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients made more chiropractic visits, but they reported less back pain. The researchers concluded that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
