Chiropractic Versus Muscle Relaxants

A recent study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics compared the success of chiropractic care, muscle relaxants and a placebo for the relief of subacute low back pain (back pain present 2-6 weeks). According to the findings, chiropractic was more beneficial than placebo in reducing pain and more beneficial than either placebo or muscle relaxants in reducing Global Impression of Severity Scale (a measure of overall severity).
