 “My chiropractor gets it. My Georgetown chiropractor appreciates fully how this back pain and sciatica have disturbed my life. My Georgetown chiropractor is helping  relieve the back pain and leg pain, so I can live my life again.” Dr. Butwell hears this all the time! Georgetown back pain and leg pain patients of all ages  and particularly our older Georgetown back pain patients who have sought help from many other doctors with no relief. Dr. Butwell helps reduce back pain and leg pain gently and successfully with Cox Technic.


Having back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is unique compared with a time – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain or sciatica as a younger person. There is a range of types of sciatica patients – those who have mild leg pain to those with high pain, disability and timeframe of having it. Researchers found that most improvement for pain and disability happened in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients reported recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica affects about 25% of us. Typical complaints are of lower limb pain that is more bothersome than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may accompany the sciatic pain. The typical care options are pain medications of all kinds from NSAIDS to opioids without much evidence for their use. Further, most clinical trials for these meds for managing the pain of sciatica actually exclude older people. (2) Dr. Butwell offers a non-drug option for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research evidence to support its utilization and documentation of its value for that life-changing encounter with back and sciatic pain.


Patients explain to researchers that “It has changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that persists beyond 3 months. Specifically, a new article clarifies that back pain sufferers declare that it harms their sense of self, causes them to feel like they are trapped in a body that just will not work anymore, complicates family relationships, keeps them working with pain, and causes them to feel socially and recreationally repressed. (3) Dr. Butwell has seen this in its years of caring for Georgetown back pain. Back pain disrupts life. Dr. Butwell provides hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, Dr. Butwell hears from Georgetown back pain patients that even 50% relief would be really very gratifying, allowing them to return to their lifestyle.
