Chiropractic Proven Effective for Low Back Pain

Evidence for Chiropractic Treatment of Low Back Pain

Back pain is the most common complaint treated by chiropractors. A recent scientific review suggests that chiropractic care may be as effective as pain-killing medications without the side effects associated with medications.

Researchers performed a review of the current research to analyse the effectiveness of and any potential harm associated with spinal adjustments, compared with other non-manipulative therapies for adults with acute low back pain.

The Cochrane review found that manipulation for low back pain provided similar relief to anti-inflammatory drugs; however, chiropractic care has none of the risks associated with medication. Recent research suggests a link between over the counter painkillers and heart attacks, while there is widespread concern about deaths from the use of opioid drugs.

Chiropractic Treatments Show Improvement in Pain & Function

Of 26 randomised clinical trials (RCT’s), 15 RCTs (1,711 patients) showed that spinal manipulation has a statistically significant association with improvements in pain. Twelve randomized controlled trials (1,381 patients) showed that spinal manipulation has a statistically significant association with improvements in function. No RCT reported any serious adverse event.
