Journal of the American Medical Association Suggests Chiropractic

Try Chiropractic and Other Conservative Methods First

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that patients try chiropractic and other more conservative types of treatment for their back pain. In many cases, pain can be alleviated without the use of unnecessary drugs or surgery, so it makes sense to exhaust conservative options first,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC.

Chiropractic is Cost Effective and Clinically Effective

“Research confirms that the services provided by chiropractic physicians are not only clinically effective but also cost-effective, so taking a more conservative approach at the onset of low back pain can also potentially save both patients and the health care system money down the line,” he added.

The article, part of JAMA’s Patient Page public education series, explains that the back is made up of bones, nerves, muscles and other soft tissues such as ligaments and tendons that support posture and give the body flexibility. Back pain can be caused by problems with any of the structures in the back.

Chiropractic Well Suited To Manage Back Pain

As neuromusculoskeletal experts, chiropractic physicians are particularly well suited to manage and help prevent low back pain.
