Spinal Manipulation for Acute Back Pain
 
Acute low back pain – pain that lasts up to 6 weeks in duration – responds to spinal manipulation according to a new article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that studied published randomized clinical trials. This review reports that spinal manipulation provides modest improvement in pain and function with no serious adverse effects. (2)  
 
JAMA also published an editorial by the well-known medical doctor and author, Richard Deyo, MD, about spinal manipulation for back pain incorporating Paige’s study. The editorial explains that spinal manipulation treatment for acute low back pain is appropriate. Its use is in line with the American College of Physicians review and subsequent guideline. Spinal manipulation allows modest improvement in pain and function in the short-term compared with sham manipulation, usual care and other treatments. And of note, Deyo emphasizes that, of the trials reviewed by Paige et al and the American College of Physicians, none suggested that spinal manipulation care was less effective than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). SMT proved equal to or exceeded conventional care. (3) 
 
Cox Technic spinal manipulation as offered at Johnson Chiropractic is well documented as to how it biomechanically and clinically improves back pain: days and visits to maximum improvement as well as the effects it has on spinal elements like disc pressures and spinal canal area. Your chiropractor delivers this cutting edge, well-documented, and researched form of spinal manipulation.  Schedule a Richmond chiropractic appointment at Johnson Chiropractic for back pain relief with spinal manipulative care.
