Studies Show Chiropractic Care Effectively Treats Back Pain
The ideal scenario for back pain is to enable your body to heal itself so you don’t need surgery or pain pills to get back pain relief. At Eldorado Chiropractic in McKinney, we take the drug-free approach to providing back pain relief.
Don’t Become Another Back Pain Statistic
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.
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
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.
