Eighty percent of Americans will experience disabling low back pain at least once during their lives. Many people do not know where to look to find the best treatment for lower back pain so they continue to suffer through their days and nights. Help is just a phone call away to schedule an appointment with a specialized back chiropractor!

Chiropractors have helped millions of people with low back problems, often saving them from pain, disability, drugs, and surgery. It has been proven that chiropractic treatment (spinal manipulation and spinal decompression therapy) are among the most preferred and most effective methods of care for acute adult low back pain. Extended bed rest (more than four days) has been found to be harmful, and that muscle relaxants and surgery can be unnecessary and, in some cases, harmful.

Many people wonder how the effectiveness of the common forms of treatment for neck and back pain are assessed.  Here is a look at three studies that compared these three popular forms of care for the chronic spinal pain to determine the short-term and more importantly, the LONG-TERM benefits of chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, like Advil).

The first published study included a group of 77 patients complaining of chronic spinal pain (neck, mid-back, or low-back pain). These patients were separated into one of three treatment groups and received NSAIDs, acupuncture, or chiropractic manipulation. Patients received care for four weeks with outcome measures (questionnaires) used to assess changes in pain and disability. After a 30-day time frame, only patients who received chiropractic manipulation reached a level of statistically significant improvement, supporting that chiropractic care offered the best short-term benefits for those with chronic back/neck pain.

Today’s culture urges us to exercise in order to keep fit and to avoid weight gain. This is a fun way to burn calories, tone muscles, and increase metabolism, either individually or with a team or partner. Unfortunately, statistics show the number of sports injuries continues to increase. High school athletes account for an estimated 2 million injuries and 500,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations each year. More than 3.5 million kids under age 14 receive medical treatment for sports injuries each year. The highest number of sports-related injuries is known to come from bicycling, basketball, baseball, and running.

Amateur sports enthusiasts, as well as professional sportsmen/women, are all likely to suffer from occasional sports injuries. Injuries may be the result of poor warm-up and stretching techniques, years of poor posture, or a previously undetected spine or joint problem. Failing to receive the appropriate sports chiropractic treatment promptly and continuing to overuse the injured area may prolong the healing process and result in a chronic injury and shorten the possibility of a promising career.
