A few decades ago, the chiropractic profession practiced in a relative absence of good scientific data concerning its main therapeutic tool, spinal manipulation.
The success of this profession and this treatment with patient care was empirically based. The evidence basis of spinal manipulation, however, has changed dramatically in recent years with a large number of well done clinical trials that have filled the information void.
No other back pain treatment has been subjected to such examination…when numerous clinical trials are considered together, the evidence in favor of chiropractic manipulation is overwhelming.
Analysis of the volume of research available on the topic of spinal manipulation and low back pain can be surprising to many health care providers who do not practice this specialty. The volume of research on spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is greater than for any other single treatment used for this condition. Currently, there are approximately 50 clinical trials of which about 35 are controlled randomized trials examining spinal manipulation for low back pain. This is approximately 4 to 5 times the trials that have examined the validity of NSAIDs (like Motrin, Alieve, etc) for this patient population.
The majority of the clinical trials on spinal manipulation for acute low back pain have found this treatment to be beneficial, outperforming the comparative or control treatments which have included virtually all other commonly used therapies.
The bottom line is that spinal manipulation words to relieve low back pain!
Manipulation has consistently outperformed any other therapy, compared to ultrasound only, traction only, exercise, bedrest and medications.
In most cases, it has provided benefits with range of motion, cost-effectiveness, decrease in lost productivity, patient satisfaction and pain relief.
