Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home workers or out-in-the-world workers, active military people or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for relieving back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and military/veteran care systems. The newer interest has been how much chiropractic care is best for back pain relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Groton back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some time in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were reportedly lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Groton chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain annually. Low back pain for older adults is described as being debilitating as it often curbs their independence and multiplies the number of doctor visits they have. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their back pain and disability and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office witnesses these same outcomes for our Groton back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain along with other medical issues who utilized only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, shorter occurrences of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus for Groton back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans get back pain and experience 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 (one 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 discovered 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 similar 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 intensity and disability was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that involves chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The goal of Groton chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is prepared to deliver that!
