Best Low Back Pain Treatment
Video by Dr. Chris Phillips
What this research proved is chiropractic care for low back pain (LBP) is the most effective type of treatment available. I always get patients, especially when I first started my practice and didn’t know as many people, who come in and say “Doc, I’ve tried everything, you are my last resort.” The truth is I should have been the first resort. Chiropractic care is the safest, most effective, and most cost effective way to treat low back and neck pain. The research is clear and abundant when it comes to this topic. What this research proved is chiropractic care for low back pain (LBP) is the most effective type of treatment available. This is the reason why I chose this research which you’ll see in the video. This randomized clinical trial puts chiropractic care up against usual medical care to see which is more effective at treating acute and sub-acute low back pain in 107 people. The results show that chiropractic adjustments delivered by hand got rid of the pain for 96% of the people. When adjustment were done by an instrument (activator) there was pain relief in 69% of subjects and Usual medical care helped 56% of subjects. Usual medical care meant the doctor told the patients to take NSAIDs as needed, which are over the counter pain meds and to also try and stay active and not lay in bed too much. Proper motion in the joints are the key to reducing pain. No medicine will ever restore motion and therefore will not help get rid of the pain and will wear off. The chiropractic adjustment is designed to restore proper motion and that is why it is effective. It all comes down to Hilton’s Law. What is that? I am glad you asked. Go ahead and hit play so you can find out. Never live with pain again. We hope you enjoy the 12 Minutes To Health!
