Chiropractic Care Helps Back-Related Leg Pain

Back-related leg pain is often disabling and costly. In people with back-related leg pain, spinal

manipulation therapy (SMT) plus home exercise and advice (HEA) provided more short-term

improvement in pain and ability than HEA alone, according to a study.

The trial consisted of 192 adults with subacute or chronic back-related leg pain who were

randomized into two groups. Over the course of twelve weeks, one group received SMT along

with HEA and the other group received only HEA. During this time, patients worked with

chiropractors, exercise therapists, and a personal trainer to receive efficient instruction and

treatment to relieve back-related leg pain.

Chiropractic care including the use of spinal manipulation therapy in conjunction with home

exercise and advice offers a safe and conservative approach to effectively reduce hindering and

costly back-related leg pain.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
