Research Supports Effectiveness of Chiropractic
By Debra Rodzinak
The main reason patients visit chiropractors are for back and neck pain relief. There have been many research articles that address the effectiveness of spinal manipulation.
The Annals of Internal Medicine
The growing research reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine shows that manipulation of the spine in conjunction with exercise is more effective than medication. This is thought to occur due to the approach of chiropractors and their view of back and neck pain.
At The Joint Chiropractic, the expert doctors of chiropractic believe in addressing the root cause of pain instead of masking the pain. By addressing the reasons for pain, often misalignment of the spinal joints, chiropractors are able to use gentle spinal adjustments to bring proper alignment to the spine. When the spine is properly aligned, the body is able to better heal itself without the use of medication.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
In another respected journal, the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reports that those who use chiropractic care along with other forms of integrated health care can realize a “51.8 percent reduction in pharmaceutical costs and 43 percent fewer hospital admissions.” Studies have also shown that millennials are interested in finding natural ways to relieve back and neck pain that don’t involve the use of drugs or surgery.
When you experience back or neck pain, a highly qualified chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic will safely and effectively treat your pain naturally through the use of gentle spinal adjustments. Instead of using pain medication, muscle relaxers, or even surgery, a chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic advises patients of their treatment options and lets the patient decide what the best course of action will be for finding pain relief.
Patients are becoming more interested in the root cause of their pain and the best way to relieve it naturally, rather than merely masking the pain with addictive prescription pain killers. Back and neck pain, along with headaches, are often attributed to musculoskeletal alignment issues. A chiropractor can use gentle pressure on particular points on the spine to help bring the spine back into proper alignment. This allows the nerves to work as intended and bring a better flow of energy to the spine.
