Exercise is good and beneficial. It
goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care of spine pain conditions of all sorts.

in their healing. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows our Auburn
chiropractic patients just want to get back to doing what they want to do, what

support. Back school and manipulation/mobilization are standards of care for managing chronic nonspecific low back pain. These two approaches are suggested
over many other types of care. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses spinal
manipulation in the form of Cox Technic, a chiropractic evidence based system of spine care.
Adding back school to the chiropractic treatment
plan enhances the good outcomes of back pain
rehabilitation. How? Back school nurtures self-management, gives
control back to the patient to help him/herself. (5)
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. strives to educate our back pain patients as

Back pain patients stated 95% satisfaction with going to the
class, and 100% said it was worth the doctor’s time
