Chiropractic for lower back pain - results of study
« on: May 08, 2010, 12:27:06 AM »
Well it's official the recent cochrane review of chiropractic treatment for lower back pain found:

However, the effect was small and all studies contributing to these results had high risk of bias. There was no difference in medium- and long-term disability. No difference was demonstrated for combined chiropractic interventions for chronic LBP and for studies that had a mixed population of LBP.

We hear a lot of claims from chiropractors that it is the best way to treat back pain but in reality that is not the case at all. For the money you spend it appears largely a waste. If you would like to read the full findings of the review before wasting a lot of time and money going down that road here is the link:
