Low back pain is one of the most common health complaints, affecting 8 out of 10 people, according to the National Center of Complimentary and Integrative Health. Low back pain can be short term (only last a few days or weeks) or can be chronic. Since there are so many contributing factors that cause low back pain, it can be challenging to diagnose and treat.
An effective way to treat low back pain is chiropractic. Spinal manipulation can relieve pain and improve function. By restoring proper alignment, pressure can be relieved and muscle strain can be helped.
Does chiropractic work for treatment of low back pain?
According to the National Center of Complimentary and Integrative Health, “Researchers are investigating whether the effects of spinal manipulation depend on the length and frequency of treatment. In one study funded by NCCIH that examined long-term effects in more than 600 people with low-back pain, results suggested that chiropractic care involving spinal manipulation was at least as effective as conventional medical care for up to 18 months. However, less than 20 percent of participants in this study were pain free at 18 months, regardless of the type of treatment used.”
Exercise, massage therapy and physical therapy can also alleviate the symptoms associated with low back pain. If you are experiencing consistent low back pain, call Care Medical Center today.
