At one health center that integrated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with a long history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her whole care approach. Most recently, she experienced neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years earlier. Additionally, she had knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her lifetime, depression, opioid dependence, and minimal quality of life. After 6 months of chiropractic care which included manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise suggestions, she described improvement in pain and quality of life along with discontinuation of opioid pain medications.

Though third-party payers want to limit coverage for chiropractic care, visiting a chiropractor on an on-going basis for “maintenance care” is effective. A new study compared patients who received chiropractic care for bothersome low back pain on a consistent basis to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms appeared. Chiropractic care on a consistent basis was more effective in decreasing the overall number of days in a year that patients had troubling low back pain. Yes, these patients made more chiropractic visits, but they experienced less back pain. The researchers suggested that maintenance care be considered a low back pain prevention option.
