Dentists. Chefs. Flight attendants. Medicare retirees. This is just the beginning of the list. Each of these people face the risk for back and/or neck pain. Several professions are simply create more risk due to the nature of their job. Setting up an appointment to see a chiropractor for these neuromusculoskeletal and musculoskeletal conditions is a great idea. Back pain and neck pain and the associated arm pain and leg pain are spinal conditions chiropractic physicians are trained and skilled to manage. And in Southern New Hampshire, New Hampshire Spine and Sport helps contain the risk and reduce the pain for Southern New Hampshire workers of all vocations AND avocations!

In a recent report, researchers compared patients (Medicare beneficiaries from 66 to 99 years of age) seeing a chiropractor versus a primary care physician (PCP). The patients desired care for a neuromusculoskeletal problem. The probability of injury or risk of injury to head/neck/trunk of a patient within 7 days of the visit was 76% LOWER for chiropractic office visit patients than those patients who saw a PCP:

  • Chiropractic: only 40 per 100,000 patients
  • PCP: 152 per 100,000 patients (1)

Therefore, come see your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor - your back pain specialist - for your neuromusculoskeletal aches and pains! Our gentle chiropractic care - the evidence-based Cox Technic - is so relieving.
