Xia, T. et al. (2016) Similar Effects of Thrust and Non-Thrust Spinal Manipulation Found in Adults With Subacute and Chronic Low Back Pain: A Controlled Trial with Adaptive Allocation Spine 2016 June; 41 (12): E702-E709
"The aim of this study was to compare short-term effects of a side-lying, thrust spinal manipulation (SM) procedure and a non-thrust, flexion-distraction SM procedure [Cox flexion-distraction table] in adults with subacute or chronic low back pain (LBP) over 2 weeks."
"The majority of the participants (90%) reported chronic LBP with the current episode lasting for more than three months and 62% had LBP lasting for more than 1 year."
"Adjusted mean RMDQ [Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire] and pain intensity at week 3 was not different between the two SM [Spinal Manipulation] groups, but both SM groups had significantly lower scores than the wait list group."
When people suffering with low back pain do not address the underlying causes (segmental spinal joint restriction, inflammation, deconditioning), but instead simply try to mask the symptoms with medication, the low back pain can often become chronic.
Even after months or years of suffering with chronic low back pain and months or years of failed attempts to mask the pain with medications, starting chiropractic care to address the underlying causes can have immediate benefit both in terms of pain reduction and increased functional abilities.
Key Take Home Points:
The unique effectiveness of chiropractic care lies in the unique ability of chiropractic adjustments/SMT to restore proper segmental joint motion by gradually and incrementally breaking up scar tissue adhesions, resolving inflammation, and restoring proper neuromuscular function and spinal fitness – no drug, surgery, or modality can do this!
When spinal fitness and reconditioning exercises and omega-3 and vitamin D are added to chiropractic SMT/Adjustments this represents the most evidence-based, most effective spinal health care protocol available.
There is simply no better, quicker, safer, or more cost-effective way to restore segmental motion, resolve inflammation, restore neuromuscular function, and restore and maintain spinal health, fitness, and comfort.
Get and keep your spine healthy, functional, and comfortable with chiropractic care – it’s never too late!
