Low back pain is a problem for the low back pain sufferer, the family, the community, and the healthcare system. Healthcare providers and researchers analyze proposed long-term ways to reduce this problem for whose sufferers’ disability continues. Exercise leads the list of non-invasive, non-drug general recommendations with manual therapy and massage in that list as well. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is the Groton back pain specialty clinic to which many back pain sufferers see.


Numerous chronic back pain sufferers take themselves to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care typically involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to find benefit. In this recent study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these three options, exercise was the only intervention that showed sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later.

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office always incorporates it in the Groton chiropractic treatment plan.
