LATEST NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
RESEARCH HAS SHOWN…
Spinal Manipulation Should be Utilized Before Resorting to Medication for Pain Relief
The American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends first using non-invasive, non-drug treatments which include chiropractic care before resorting to drug therapies. Qaseem A, et al. Noninvasive treatments for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain: A clinical practice guideline from the American College of Physicians. Ann Intern Med. 2017.
Reduction In the Need for Surgical Intervention
Reduced odds of surgery were observed for…those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor. — Keeney et al (2012), Spine
More Effective then Medication
In a study funded by NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to test the effectiveness of different approaches for treating mechanical neck pain, 272 participants were divided into three groups that received either spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) from a doctor of chiropractic (DC), pain medication (over-the-counter pain relievers, narcotics and muscle relaxants) or exercise recommendations. After 12 weeks, about 57 percent of those who met with DCs and 48 percent who exercised reported at least a 75 percent reduction in pain, compared to 33 percent of the people in the medication group. After one year, approximately 53 percent of the drug-free groups continued to report at least a 75 percent reduction in pain; compared to just 38 percent pain reduction among those who took medication. — Bronfort et al. (2012), Annals of Internal Medicine
Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care
In combination with the existing US-based literature, our findings support the value of health insurance coverage of chiropractic care for low back and neck pain…” In addition, “we project that insurance coverage for chiropractic physician care for low back and neck pain for conditions other than fracture and malignancy is likely to drive improved cost-effectiveness of US care. — Mercer Report (Harvard Medical School), 2009.
In Comparison to Other Treatment Alternatives
“Acute and chronic chiropractic patients experienced better outcomes in pain, functional disability, and patient satisfaction; clinically important differences in pain and disability improvement were found for chronic patients.” — Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Haas et al. (2005)
Popularity of Chiropractic
“Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. CAM patient surveys show that chiropractors are used more often than any other alternative provider group and patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high. There is steadily increasing patient use of chiropractic in the United States, which has tripled in the past two decades. ” — Annals of Internal Medicine, Meeker and Haldeman (2002)
