Dr. Butwell cooperates with our Georgetown back pain patients to develop the relieving treatment plan. Dr. Butwell’s experience steers this development. Assisting Georgetown back pain patients attain relief is what Dr. Butwell does.  Does such confidence and experience allow for better outcomes for Georgetown chiropractic patients? Likely reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient anticipates a positive result from the care he or she is getting, the odds of a good outcome are increased. What about the preference for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s preference  for treatment type impact the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s does not as much. Very interesting! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief increased by 69.3 times when that back pain patient received care from a healthcare provider team which strongly preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method didn’t increase the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It seems the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) So good! Your Georgetown chiropractor is confident that the Georgetown treatment plan which likely includes Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will help Georgetown pain patients. Dr. Butwell has witnessed many Georgetown back pain patients report great relief!


Adding non-surgical distraction therapy to the treatment of lumbar disc herniation aids the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks underwent electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. They did well. The pain and function improved along with a reduction in the size of the disc herniation. But those patients who also received the distraction therapy did better. At the end of their care, clinical and radiological findings show improvement. The disc herniation reduction was more evident in the patients with distraction therapy added to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Dr. Butwell sees it all the time!
