And finding the right pain relief is no easy thing.  Many people often ask the question, “Can chiropractors help my back pain?” According to a 2015 National Institute of Health report, an estimated 27 million Americans are evaluated and treated by a chiropractor each year, mostly for back pain relief.

Although the practice of spinal manipulation was once considered a fringe medical treatment for back pain, it is now being adopted by more medical doctors as a viable treatment option. The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society in their patient care guidelines included spinal manipulation as one of several options for practitioners to consider when ordinary, uncomplicated back pain didn't improve with self-care.
