Renowned Healthcare Journal Recommends Maintenance Adjustments For Pain Prevention!!

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

This could become what is referred to as a “landmark” study

It relates to the chiropractic and the renowned journal, SPINE, more than recommends……it EMPHATICALLY recommends that Chiropractic adjustments to the tune of twice per month to the lower back may stop recurring instances of low back pain.

Pain and disability scores were constantly lowered in the group that received the chiropractic adjustments.

THE definitive magazine, SPINE, on the spine for all healthcare practitioners concluded that they found that “we suggest that maintained spinal manipulation is beneficial to patietns with chronic nonspecific low back pain particularly those who gain improvement after initial intesive manipulation to maintain the improved post-treatment pain and disability levels.”

Here is a link to the study.

This is exciting stuff, folks, and we expect to see more and more of these research results to continue to pile up. At some point, you will no longer have that uncle from 1985, or that old school medical doctor or physical therapist, telling you that chiropractors are crazy and that they are going to hurt you……that foolishness and ignorance will no longer be ringing in folks’ ears.

Those archaic opinions of chiropractic and chiropractors will begin to give way to evidence, fact, and research.

There are regulating, governing bodies in each state that watch over chiropractors. They all have a “scope of practice” that chiropractors are bound by. In Texas, our scope includes conditions of the spine and joints. If chiropractors are discussing chiropractic as cures for cancer and things of that sort….they may be out of their scope of practice.

However, as long as they stay within the box that their governing body puts them in, the benefits should be outstanding and the trust of the community will never be in question.

Till next time…..
