Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic benefits the care of Augusta chronic back pain patients cost-effecitvely utilizing gentle, safe, research-recorded protocols of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Back pain isn’t cheap. With the cost of spine pain in the US valued to be $134.5 billion (1), Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is fairly certain that our chiropractic patients would welcome cost-effective care. A recent Canadian study of high-cost back pain patients in the healthcare system uncovered that they accounted for nearly 50% of the healthcare spending in a year. (2) Another paper reported results showing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also had reduced costs and healthcare services compared with medical management. (1) We know our Augusta chiropractic patients would like coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare providers to receive the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together help patients dealing with Augusta back and other spine pain conditions. A study in South Africa evaluated the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Fascinating outcomes! Each profession assessed 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 work together in managing patients for their pain relief. (3) Your Augusta chiropractor strives to keep our patients in the center of  a treatment plan to reduce their pain and healthcare usage.


For chronic low back pain patients, those whose pain lasts over 3 months that leads to emotional distress and physical disability and more healthcare care, 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 delivered maximum clinical improvement. Plus, fewer than 9% of the low back pain patients entered the chronic phase. (5) Preventing chronic pain is a commendable effort!
