Another surprising study showing spinal manipulation decreases back pain. I sarcastically say surprising, those of you that are frequent blog followers know that I post a lot of studies showing the efficacy of chiropractic care.
Years ago one of the complaints about chiropractic care was there are not enough studies to prove if it is safe, effective and just how it really works from a scientific standpoint. Over the past 20 years Palmer College of Chiropractic as worked closely with research teams to increase case studies. This one from Spine Journal has some amazing outcomes.
- Nearly six out of ten patients (57 percent) experienced a reduction in chronic low back pain and a reduction in disability (78 percent) utilizing manipulation or mobilization as compared to other therapies.
- A majority (79 percent) reported that manipulation significantly reduced pain and disability, compared to other approaches such as physical therapy.
- Both manipulation and mobilization therapies are considered beneficial and safe.
Would you like to have 79% reduction in pain? Want a safe and effective treatment that has NO side effects?
