Patients get relief from spinal manipulation therapy

 From lower back pain

A new study published in The Spine Journal (2018) concludes spinal manipulation is most likely to reduce chronic low back pain and improve function when compared to other approaches.

Nearly 94 percent of all spinal manipulations in the U.S. are performed by a doctor of chiropractic. The prevalence of lower back pain in the U.S. may be as high as 84 percent. In approximately 23 percent of people suffer from lower back pain, the pain becomes chronic and disables nearing half of this population.

“Chiropractic care is proven to yield improved clinical outcomes, reduced costs and high levels of patient satisfaction,” said Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president, F4CP. “Given the increased interest in providing Americans with drug/non-pharmacologic pain management options, this study better positions doctors of chiropractic as front-line providers for spinal health and well-being, specifically as it relates to the management of chronic lower back pain prior to the utilization of prescription opioids.

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.
