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 common 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 consequence of repeated nerve stimulation has on the central nervous system - is purported to contribute to chronicity of pain.  Spinal manipulation’s benefit may well stem from its impact on this sensitization. (4) That’s a benefit chronic back pain sufferers can accept.


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 generated 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, passing adverse effects. (5) Another such meta-analysis determined 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 specifically focused on older (ages 65-91 y/o) chronic low back pain sufferers, the same conclusions were found: spinal manipulation should be considered a beneficial treatment for the older patient with chronic low back pain to relieve pain and improve function. (7) Most spinal manipulation is done by chiropractors according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. (8) And chiropractors like yours at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center researched and learned more about the delivery of the gentle, non-thrust type of spinal manipulation known as Cox® Technic which well know for its care of disc herniation and spinal stenosis pain as well as more usual spinal pain conditions.
