Back pain is not inexpensive. With the cost of spine pain in the US valued to be $134.5 billion (1), Young Chiropractic is fairly certain that our chiropractic patients would welcome cost-effective care. A newer Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system found that they accounted for nearly 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper reported results revealing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also experienced reduced costs and healthcare services compared with medical management. (1) We know our Easley chiropractic patients would appreciate coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare providers to get the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together help patients dealing with Easley back and other spine-related conditions. A study in South Africa looked at the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Fascinating outcomes! Each profession evaluated the other’s with regards to what conditions it treated, what modalities it utilized, how well each did at helping neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Interprofessional referrals for chiropractors were 82% and 55% for physiotherapists though 69% of chiropractors and 55% of physiotherapists wanted to collaborate in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) Your Easley chiropractor strives to keep our patients in the center of  the treatment plan to lower their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months and usually leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare utilization, 12 sessions of spinal manipulation offered greater pain relief than a control intervention.  (4) Another study of 1000 low back pain sufferers treated with Cox® Technic flexion distraction protocols also reported that a mean of 12 visits in 29 days produced maximum clinical improvement. Plus, less than 9% of the low back pain patients entered the chronic phase. (5) Preventing chronic pain is a commendable effort!
