Hundreds of millions of adults around the world suffer from back pain, with some cases being chronic in nature. Unfortunately, most individuals rely on pain medicine to get through the day, instead of addressing the cause of the pain. This often leads to worse pain as time goes on, with patients needing stronger and more dangerous painkillers to alleviate the discomfort.
Fortunately, you don’t need to rely on prescription pills to manage your pain. A new analysis published by the Journal of the America Medical Association looked at the results of 26 different studies performed on chiropractic adjustments for patients suffering from back pain.
The review found that spinal manipulation may be an effective way to treat lower back pain and potentially even prevent it entirely.
We’ve seen significant improvement in patients who undergo weekly chiropractor visits for their back. But we also recommend combining it with other pain reduction strategies like PRP injections, exercise, and supplementation.
If you’re looking for alternatives to back surgery, finding a health and wellness center with a chiropractor may just be the answer.
