Does Adding Chiropractic Care to Usual Medical Care Have an Effect for Patients with Low Back Pain?
If so, then what is the effect? We believe that Chiropractic care is effective and safe, but it is great when research studies continue to further prove this.
The study (linked below) was performed on US military personnel. They added chiropractic care to their usual model of low back treatment. Patients who received the chiropractic care with their medical treatment had a “statistically significant moderate improvement in low back pain intensity and disability at 6 weeks.”
Less pain and improved function sounds like a win-win to me!
