Chiropractic Reduces Disability. When you factor in the growing opioid crisis in America, doctors are constantly looking for alternative ways to help their patients. In particular, they are looking for solutions that are less addictive and have fewer side effects. In fact, this concern prompted research into chiropractic treatment for back pain related disability. However, before I reveal the research, did you know that one out of every five adults in the U.S. suffers from back pain? As a result, it comes as no surprise that back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Here’s what researchers discovered.
Chiropractic care in the study included spinal corrections to help restore proper bone position in the lower back. In some cases, doctors also took care of other areas of the spine. The study involved 750 patients. Participants assigned to chiropractic care received an average of two to five visits, depending on their treatment facility. After six weeks, people who received spinal corrections reported lower pain levels. In fact, their disability scores were much lower than individuals who didn’t have spinal treatments. Furthermore, the patients receiving spinal corrections continued to improvement after 12 weeks.
Why It Works.
Spinal corrections help heal tissues in your body that form as a result of injury. As a result, this type of care reduces pain and improves your body’s ability to move correctly. This information comes from the lead author, Dr. Christine Goertz. Dr. Goertz is responsible for the research.
It is also possible that spinal corrections help your body changes the way your brain handles pain. As a result, you feel less pain from muscle strain, inflammation and/or spasm in the muscles next to your spine, according to the lead author. JAMA published the research in May of 2018.
