Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not choosy. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world people, active military people or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for aiding back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The more recent interest has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic follows this research since military/veteran back pain looks a lot like our civilian Eugene back pain!


80% of us will get back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Eugene chiropractic care is designed to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly get low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often limits their independence and multiplies their doctor visits. A study that merged chiropractic and primary care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over primary care alone. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic witnesses these same outcomes for our Eugene back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with 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 lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a shorter time at less expense…a triple bonus with Eugene chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and experience 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 sets out 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 inserted into 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 goal of Eugene chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to provide that!
