Georgetown chronic pain suffered by an individual makes him/her part of a group s/he did not intend  to join.

Chiropractors like your Georgetown chiropractor at Dr. Butwell care for Georgetown patients with chronic neck pain and low back pain all the time. A recent study of 2,024 chiropractic patients in the US reported that, as a group, these chronic pain patients found significant improvement in their health-related quality of life over time, especially for pain. The study concluded that chiropractic benefits the functioning and well-being of chronic low back pain and neck pain patients. (1)


At one health center that incorporated chiropractic care into their services, a chronic pain patient with an extensive history of pain found relief when chiropractic care was added to her whole care approach. Most recently, she experienced neck and back pain after a car accident 3 years prior. Additionally, she noted knee pain and pain due to over 20 surgeries in her life, depression, opioid dependence, and low quality of life. At 6 months of chiropractic care which incorporated manipulation for neck and back pain and nutrition and exercise recommendations, she stated improvement in pain and quality of life plus discontinuation of opioid pain medications.

Dr. Butwell enjoys seeing Georgetown chiropractic patients’ joy when this happens.


Though third-party payers like to restrict coverage for chiropractic care, seeing a chiropractor on an on-going basis for “maintenance care” is helpful. A new study compared patients who obtained chiropractic care for bothersome low back pain on a consistent basis to those who received chiropractic care just when symptoms bothered them. Chiropractic care on a regular basis was more effective in decreasing the overall number of days yearly that patients experienced bothersome low back pain. Yes, these patients had more chiropractic appointments, but they reported less back pain. The researchers recommended that maintenance care be taken into consideration a low back pain prevention option.
