Acute Pain: Spinal Manipulation
 
Acute low back pain – pain that lasts up to 6 weeks in duration – responds to spinal manipulation according to a new article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that reviewed published randomized clinical trials. This review finds that spinal manipulation provides modest improvement in pain and function with no serious adverse effects. (2)  
 
JAMA also printed an editorial by the esteemed medical doctor and author, Richard Deyo, MD, about spinal manipulation for back pain incorporating Paige’s study. The editorial explains that spinal manipulation treatment for acute low back pain is fitting. Its use is in line with the American College of Physicians review and subsequent guideline. Spinal manipulation provides modest improvement in pain and function in the short-term compared with sham manipulation, usual care and other treatments. And of note, Deyo emphasizes that, of the trials reviewed by Paige et al and the American College of Physicians, none suggested that spinal manipulation care was less effective than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). SMT proved equal to or better than conventional care. (3) 
 
Cox Technic spinal manipulation as offered at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is well documented as to how it biomechanically and clinically enhances back pain: days and visits to maximum improvement as well as the effects it has on spinal elements like disc pressures and spinal canal area. Your chiropractor delivers this cutting edge, well-documented, and researched form of spinal manipulation.  Schedule a Carrolltown chiropractic appointment at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for back pain relief with spinal manipulative care.
