Chiropractic Care Excellent for Treating Low Back Pain
The World Health Organization estimates that low back pain costs up to $200 billion a year in the US (including costs of care and missed work), and it’s a leading cause of disability worldwide. In recent years, more and more people are seeking out chiropractic care for low back pain. And they’re getting great results.
At First Choice Chiropractic in Peoria we provide six chiropractic techniques and various therapies shown to help reduce or eliminate back pain.
The Studies on Chiropractic Care and Low Back Pain
A 2018 study published in JAMA Network Open is among the latest to weigh in on the pros and cons of chiropractic care for treating low back pain. Researchers enrolled 750 active-duty military personnel who complained of back pain. Half were randomly assigned to receive care that included medications, self-care, and physical therapy. The other half received all that plus up to 12 chiropractic treatments.
After six weeks of treatment, those assigned to receive chiropractic care:
- Reported less pain intensity
- Experienced less disability and more improvement in function
- Reported higher satisfaction with their treatment
- Needed less pain medicine
- Adjustments Can Get to the Root of the Low Back Pain Problem
Chiropractors have the advantage of providing a non-invasive multi-tiered approach to low back pain. The root cause of your pain isn’t always obvious, but chiropractors have non-invasive methods of identifying a proper diagnosis.
Studies show chiropractic care reduces pain and inflammation while helping you recover range of motion and increase flexibility. Decreased inflammation means less pressure on your nerves and allows for better blood flow. More blood means more healing nutrients and a stronger back.
