Chiropractic care can help with a multitude of health issues including lower back pain.

According to Healthline “A recent study in JAMA Network Open focused on U.S. military personnel. It found that those who used chiropractic care — along with traditional medical care — had better pain relief outcomes than those who only sought out traditional medical care.”

Chiropractic care consists of what is commonly known as adjustments. These are different forms of spinal manipulation techniques. There are hands on adjustments or adjustments using different devices. It all depends on your individual needs. Traditional medicine’s solutions for low back pain often include anti-inflammatory medications or other types of drugs.

What did the study find?

This study looked at 750 active-duty military members whose average age was 31 years old. The participants were broken up into 2 groups. The first group received traditional medical treatment for their back pain while also receiving chiropractic care.

The second group just received traditional medical treatment for their back pain. After the 6 week study the first group, who received both traditional care and chiropractic care, saw higher improvements in their pain levels compared to those in the second group, who only received traditional care.

Why chiropractic care?

Many people in the United States suffer from back and neck pain and many are looking for alternatives to traditional medical remedies. With a growing number of people becoming wary of pills as a solution to pain, many are turning to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is still seen as a last resort for some people, but it is starting to become more and more common. People are beginning to see the great impact that chiropractic care can make on their pain.
