The American Pain Society and The American College of Physicians have recently updated their guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of low back pain. The new guidelines strongly recommend spinal manipulation for the treatment of acute, subacute and chronic low back. (This incidentally is the most common form of chiropractic treatment) The researchers stated, “Clinicians should consider the addition of nonpharmacological [nondrug] therapy with proven benefits for acute low back pain.
Spinal manipulation (aka chiropractic adjustment) is a hands-on, drugless therapy with proven results. Almost 95% of all spinal manipulation in the United States is conducted by chiropractic physicians. Research shows chiropractic to be less costly and more effective for treating low back pain than traditional medical care.
