 “My chiropractor gets it. My Sitka chiropractor is aware of how this back pain and sciatica have upset my life. My Sitka chiropractor is helping  relieve the back pain and leg pain, so I can get back to my life.” Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka hears this constantly! Sitka back pain and leg pain patients of all ages  and especially our older Sitka back pain patients who have visited many other doctors with no relief. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps alleviate back pain and leg pain gently and effectively with Cox Technic.


Having back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is unique compared with a time – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain or sciatica as a younger person. There is a variety of types of sciatica patients – those who experience mild leg pain to those with high pain, disability and timeframe of being affected by it. Researchers discovered that most improvement for pain and disability occurred in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients stated recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica bothers about 25% of us. Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is worse than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may accompany the sciatic pain. The typical care possibilities are pain medications of all sorts from NSAIDS to opioids devoid of much evidence for their benefit. Additionally, most clinical trials for these meds in the management of sciatica don’t incorporate older people. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers a non-drug option for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research support for its utilization and documentation of its efficacy for that life-changing encounter with back and sciatic pain.


Patients explain to researchers that “It has changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that lasts beyond 3 months. Specifically, a recent article explains that back pain sufferers declare that it harms their sense of self, makes them feel like they are trapped in a body that just won’t work anymore, complicates family relationships, keeps them working painfully, and causes them to feel socially and recreationally repressed. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka has seen this in its years of taking care of Sitka back pain. Back pain disturbs life. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka gives hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka hears from Sitka back pain patients that even 50% relief would be so satisfying, allowing them to get back to their lives.
