Medical Study Indicates Chiropractic Care Most Effective For Back Pain

According to a new study conducted by a medical doctor and PhD's, chiropractic care compared to medical or physical therapy care results in a significantly lesser recurrence in those suffering from work-related nonspecific low back pain. While this is likely no surprise to chiropractors or many of their patients, what was surprising was the additional finding that in work-related nonspecific low back pain, receiving health maintenance care from a physical therapist or medical doctor was associated with a higher degree of disability recurrence than compared with receiving no treatment whatsoever. Results from the study were based on 894 cases followed for 1 year using workers' compensation claims data. If you're suffering from pain, make the safe, natural and research proven choice - call your local chiropractor today and schedule a no obligation consultation!
