Non-Drug Care First for Back Pain

The latest medical back pain care guidelines published contain those from the American College of Physicians (internists). Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, these guidelines define three types of back pain: acute/subacute, chronic, and non-responsive. For the acute/subacute/chronic back pain patients, spinal manipulation is a treatment course recommendation. (1) It’s non-invasive and non-pharmacological. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka emphasizes that it is effective! It’s evidence-based.

The Journal of the American Medical Association released an article endorsing spinal manipulation.  One is a review of published randomized clinical trials. (Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka notes that these review studies are high level research!) This review focuses on acute low back pain (pain that persists for up to 6 weeks). It reports that spinal manipulation shows modest improvement in pain and function with no adverse effects. (2) Compared with recent reports of the opioid epidemic and the risk of oral steroids (3), no adverse effects is big! That should excite Sitka back pain patients! The other is an editorial comment by a prominent medical doctor, Richard Deyo MD, who agrees that spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is fitting and supplies at least equal if not better results than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka mentions that Sitka chiropractic care with Cox Technic is evidence-based and gentle and safe.
