Chiropractic Low Back Pain Treatment
Chiropractic treatment of lower back pain is one of the most effective, researched and safe medical procedures today.
Chiropractic treatment effective for back pain
Many studies have been done over a span of many decades proving that chiropractic back pain treatment is the most effective form of care for back pain. Research shows us that chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy (adjustments) relieves lower back pain quicker than medication and physical therapy. It is also less costly and gets injured people back on the job faster with fewer sick days.
Chiropractic therapy heavily researched and proven
Few health care disciplines have been as scrutinized as chiropractic. Going back decades when medical doctors feared competition from doctors of chiropractic in musculoskeletal conditions, organized medicine funded research projects to disprove chiropractic. The result? Most of the studies found chiropractic to be surprisingly effective! This lead to those studies being stashed away from the public. Even the department of defense prior to WWII commissioned a study and when they found chiropractors could help injured soldiers, the AMA lobbied to hide the findings. Finally, in the late 80’s the United States Supreme Court found the AMA and other medical organizations guilty of racketeering and trying to monopolize health care. Through this high court action, the public became aware of the many positive research studies about chiropractic. Of course today, there are many studies showing the positive aspects of chiropractic and how it can positively affect your health.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe
The treatment your chiropractic provides is one of the safest procedures available. Your chance of having a serious side effect as the direct result of chiropractic treatment is one in many millions. This has been proven in insurance company statistics. This is why chiropractors pay very little for malpractice insurance when compared to other medical providers. Chiropractic is safer than taking an over the counter pain reliever: every year at least 20,000 Americans die from taking over the counter Tylenol. That does not count prescriptions and does not count other drugs such as Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc. Chiropractic is safer than driving your car. You have a one in four chance of serious injury just driving to see your chiropractor!
Low back pain treatments by chiropractors begins with a thorough evaluation of your health, risk factors and a specialized examination that encompasses what a general medical doctor, orthopedist AND a neurologist would perform, PLUS a chiropractic spinal examination. X-rays are often used to find underlying pathology like fractures, tumors, etc as well as the overall health and condition of your spine, alignment, etc.
Actual treatments are usually painless and can include physiotherapy modalities such as heat, ice, stretching, electrical stimulation, cold laser and of course chiropractic spinal adjustments. Care is designed to remove interference from the nerves, unlock painful joints, and reduce inflammation and muscle spasm. Depending on the severity of your condition, it can take from a couple of visits to a few months to relieve back pain. Treatment is given at close intervals with 1-2 days between successive sessions to alleviate inflammation and pain as soon as possible. Unlike taking drugs and “wait and see” style of medical care, chiropractors are more assertive with care to rid you of your pain more quickly.
