Chiropractic For Back Pain
Medical Journal Recommends Chiropractic For Back Pain
THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (JAMA) RECOMMENDS CHIROPRACTIC.
For back pain, chiropractic AND medicine was shown to be better than medical alone. This combination is exciting news for chiropractors world-wide. The source of the article is taken from http://www.tricountyrecord.com and is as follows:
“The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has recommended to those patients who seek back pain treatment to consider chiropractic care before taking invasive measures such as electing for surgery. Surgery should only be considered if conservative therapies fail. According to the JAMA, conservative alternatives like Chiropractic care should be the first “line of defense” because they are safer and more efficient in relieving pain.
The JAMA’s recommendation comes on the heels of a recent study out of the medical journal Spine where sufferers of lower back pain all received standard medical care (SMC) and where half of the participants additionally received chiropractic care. The researchers found that in SMC plus chiropractic care patients, 73% reported that their pain was completely gone or much better after treatment compared to just 17% of the SMC group.
Back pain can be anything from dull or sharp pain in your back or tingling or numbness that runs down your leg. These symptoms may indicate a pinched nerve which occurs when the disc bulges out and puts extra pressure on the nerve that is exiting between the spinal bones. The Chiropractors at McCormick Chiropractic are neuro-musculoskeletal experts and are well suited to treat back pain and relieve nerve pressure. They are also experts in preventing these problems so you should not wait till you have pain to see a chiropractor.
