BACK PAIN RESEARCH

The AHCPR, Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. The AHCPR recommended spinal manipulation as the ONLY safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment of acute low back problems in adults. Pain:
“…patients suffering from back and/or neck complaints experience chiropractic care as an effective means of resolving or ameliorating pain and functional impairments, thus reinforcing previous results showing the benefits of chiropractic treatment for back and neck pain.”
– Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Verhoef et al. (1997)

“There is strong evidence that manipulation is more effective than a placebo treatment for chronic low-back pain or than usual care by the general practitioner, bed rest, analgesics and massage.”
– Spine, Vantulder and Bouter et al (1997)

“…improvement in all patients at three years was about 19% more in those treated by chiropractors than in those treated by the hospitals. The beneficial effect of chiropractic on pain was particularly clear.”
– BritishMedical Journal, Meade et al. (1995)

“Manipulative therapy and physiotherapy are better than general practitioner and placebo treatment. Furthermore, manipulative therapy is slightly better than physiotherapy after 12 months.”
– British Medical Journal, Koes et al. (1992)

– Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Verhoef et al. (1997)

“Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck Pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.”
– Duke EvidenceReport, McCrory, Penzlen, Hasselblad, Gray (2001)

“The results of this study show that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches…Four weeks after cessation of treatment the patients who received spinal manipulative therapy experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in all major outcomes in contrast to the patients that received amitriptyline therapy, who reverted to baseline values.”
– Journal of Manipulative and PhysiologicalTherapeutics, Boline et al. (1995)

HEALTH RESEARCH

“{Elderly} chiropractic users were less likely to have been hospitalized, less likely to have used a nursing home, more likely to report a better health status, more likely to exercise vigorously and more likely to be mobile in the community. In addition, they were less likely to use prescription drugs.”
– Topics in Clinical Chiropractic, Coulter et al. (1996)

The AHCPR, Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. The AHCPR recommended spinal manipulation as the ONLY safe and effective, drugless form of initial professional treatment of acute low back problems in adults.
