Continuing our theme of chiropractic reducing healthcare costs, being non-invasive and conservative, and being equally effective….research in 2013 showed that chiropractic adjustments were equally effective as epidural injections for those suffering from low back pain. And that’s minus the risks and without the significant costs that go along with the injections!
In 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) actually recommended chiropractic care before resorting to surgery. Yes, “enemies” in the title of this blog post refers to the medical associations, both state and national. However, I hope that is not misconstrued to imply that medical doctors are our enemies.
Chiropractic treatment in conjunction with traditional medical treatment has shown to provide more relief than medical care alone according to new research.
I have been preaching for over 16 years that patients with lower back pain will be prone to accelerated degeneration and arthritis as well as fibrous adhesions inside the spinal joints.
