An exciting new report concludes that chiropractic care is more effective than medical management for a common condition: chronic low-back pain.
Chronic low-back pain (CLBP) is a condition in which low-back pain persists long-term. In this study, CLBP was defined as pain lasting more than 12 weeks. Often, medical treatment fails to eradicate CLBP. Symptoms of CLBP may wax and wane, but they endure.
Findings demonstrated that the chiropractic patients enjoyed significant improvement over the medical patients, for both reduction in disability as well as reduction in pain intensity. Considering the chiropractic patients were older and had suffered their condition longer, these findings are ever more momentous.
Dr. Smith focuses on correcting a spinal condition called vertebral subluxation — a disorder characterized by restricted spinal movement or the misalignment of spinal bones (vertebrae). Dr. Smith corrects vertebral subluxations with gentle and effective maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments.
