Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not choosy. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we are stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for relieving back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Manahawkin back pain!


80% of us will get back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year because of back pain. (1) Manahawkin chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly get low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often curbs their independence and increases their doctor visits. A study that combined chiropractic and primary care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center witnesses these same outcomes for our Manahawkin back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also experience other medical issues who employed only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had lower overall costs of care, briefer episodes of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a triple bonus for Manahawkin back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and get relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A recently proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (1 to 5 visits) or higher dose (8 to 12 visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management found in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to get patients maximally improved. (5)) A related finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that incorporates chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The aim of Manahawkin chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is prepared to deliver that!
