Back pain is not cheap. With the cost of spine pain in the US estimated to be $134.5 billion (1), Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is fairly certain that our chiropractic patients would be happy with cost-effective care. A newer 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 published results revealing that spine-related pain patients who seek care from a chiropractor initially also experienced reduced costs and healthcare services compared with medical management. (1) We know our Groton chiropractic patients would appreciate coordination of care whenever possible among their healthcare providers to get the most economical and effective care.


Healthcare professionals working together benefit patients suffering with Groton back and other spine-related conditions. A study in South Africa looked at the relationship and understanding of each other’s professions between chiropractors and physiotherapists. Fascinating outcomes! Each profession assessed the other’s in terms of 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 Groton chiropractor strives to keep our patients in the center of  the treatment plan to lower 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 delivered 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, less than 9% of the low back pain patients entered the chronic phase. (5) Preventing chronic pain is a commendable effort!
