Chiropractic Better For Low Back Pain

A recent study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics shows spinal manipulation (the most common chiropractic procedure) provides a better outcome than other forms of care in those suffering from low back pain of less than 3 months duration. Spinal manipulation was compared with placebo, receiving no treatment and massage therapy. Results of the study were based on pain, time to return to work, adverse events, disability, quality of life and patient satisfaction with the therapy received.
