Malverne Health & Wellness Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may find any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The newer interest has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Malverne Health & Wellness follows this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Malverne back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or old age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Malverne chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases their doctor visits. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness witnesses these same outcomes for our Malverne 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 occurrences of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus with Malverne chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and get relief with chiropractic care. 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 (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management documented in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel with low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that includes chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The goal of Malverne chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Malverne Health & Wellness is prepared to deliver that!
