Can spinal manipulation ease my low back pain?
Someone asked me this: Can spinal manipulation ease my low back pain?
BEST ANSWER: An analysis of 15 studies involving more than 1,700 characters with acute back pain (that is, episodes lasting fewer than six weeks) was announced on April 11, 2017, issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association. Spinal manipulation was correlated with traditional care, which included education, physical therapy, and medications. The results found spinal manipulation led to small but measurable improvements in pain and
better overall function compared with the traditional care group.
So with NO EXERCISES at all and no advice, it appears the effortless visits to getting Spinal Manipulation from a Chiropractor creates relief.
Added to this result: The relief from traditional Chiropractic treatment is better than popping pills and taking physio classes A.K.A - NHS treatment choices,
WOW! Spinal manipulation on its own seems at least equivalent to conventional therapy. Unfortunately, its taken till now (2017) for research to match with what many Chiropractic patients already know.
Keep in mind that the treatment may involve multiple visits to the chiropractor, and you should always confirm the provider's credentials and is UK statutory regulated beforehand (All Chiropractors should be).
BETTER ANSWER: At the Wimbledon Chiropractic and Sports Injury Clinic we offer super Chiropractic treatment as part of our Four Core Approach. Essentially we combine Chiropractic Manipulation with traditional care, which included education, Massage and physical therapy, so you get the benefits of both.
