Not Feeling Understood About Your Back and Leg Pain? Older Peoria Back Pain Sufferers Are At Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture.

 “My chiropractor gets it. My Peoria chiropractor appreciates fully how this back pain and sciatica have disturbed my life. My Peoria chiropractor is helping  relieve the back pain and leg pain, so I can get back to my life.” Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture listens to this constantly! Peoria back pain and leg pain patients of all ages  and particularly our older Peoria back pain patients who have seen many other doctors without relief. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture helps reduce back pain and leg pain gently and effectively with Cox Technic.


Experiencing back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is different than – like most things in life – when you had 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 being affected by it. Researchers discovered that most improvement for pain and disability occurred in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients described recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica bothers about 25% of us. Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is worse than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may also join the leg pain. The usual care possibilities are pain medications of all sorts from NSAIDS to opioids without much proof for their benefit. Additionally, most clinical trials for these meds for managing the pain of sciatica don’t include older people. (2) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture implements a non-drug choice for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research support for its use and documentation of its effectiveness for that life-changing encounter with back and sciatic pain.


Patients describe 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 recent article clarifies that back pain sufferers declare that it harms their sense of self, makes them feel like they are trapped in a body that just won’t work anymore, complicates family relationships, keeps them working painfully, and causes them to feel socially and recreationally subdued. (3) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture has witnessed this in its years of taking care of Peoria back pain. Back pain upsets life. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture offers hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture hears from Peoria back pain patients that just 50% relief would be so satisfying, permitting them to get back to their lives.
