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. Surgery is permanent and doesn’t always stop the pain. And prescription medications often create more or new problems to deal with.
At ChiroConcepts in the Dallas Fort Worth area, we skip the pills and instead harness the whole-body approach. We listen to what your body’s telling us and get to the root of your back pain.
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
We use a non-invasive, multi-tiered approach to low back pain. 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.
