Relief From Low Back Pain

Statistics tell us that at least 85% of the population will experience disabling low back pain at least once in their lives. The estimated cost of treating low back pain in the U.S. is over $50 billion a year. With statistics like these, a great deal of research has been done to establish the most cost effective and efficient treatments for low back pain.

The Manga Report was commissioned by the government of Ontario in Canada. Leading economists found that chiropractic care for patients with low back pain is superior to medical care in terms of safety, scientific evidence of effectiveness, cost and patient satisfaction. According to the Manga Report, “The higher satisfaction levels expressed by patients of chiropractors…offers an overwhelming case in favor of much greater use of chiropractic services in the management of low-back pain.”

In 1990 an article published in the British Medical Journal stated the following; “Scientific studies have been done by medical physicians comparing chiropractic care with medical care and physical therapy non-surgical care of the back and neck show that doctors of chiropractic relieve chronic and severe pain, both immediate and long term, in one half the time it takes medical physicians not trained in chiropractic procedures.”

Chiropractors have helped millions of people with low back problems, often saving them from pain, disability, drugs and surgery. The chiropractor’s purpose is to make your spine and its nerves, discs and muscles healthier, stronger and more stable by correcting your vertebral misalignments. Anyone suffering from a spinal problem should see a chiropractor to make sure there is no spinal nerve stress and to have it removed or corrected if it is found.
