Chiropractic as a First Line of Defence for Acute Back Pain

Chiropractic philosophy places a strong emphasis on your body’s innate healing wisdom and far less reliance on band-aids like drugs and surgery.

Evidence has shown that chiropractic management is much safer, and less expensive, than allopathic medical treatments, particularly for low-back pain.  One such study, published in 1993, found that chiropractic management of low-back pain is superior to allopathic medical management in terms of safety, effectiveness, and cost, concluding:

“There would be highly significant cost savings if more management of LBP (low-back pain) was transferred from medical physicians to chiropractors.”

In addition, researchers have also found that chiropractic adjustments affect the chemistry of biological processes on a cellular level! What that means is that chiropractic care can affect the basic physiological processes that influence oxidative stress and DNA repair, so in addition to addressing any immediate spinal misalignment that might cause pain, it can also address deeper dysfunction in your body. Many people do not realize that there’s a whole lot more to chiropractic care than just pushing bones into place.
