Back Pain

This study was performed on patients in a typical chiropractors office.  It found that patients with low-back and neck pain experienced a 52.5% reduction in low-back pain and a 53.8% reduction in neck pain.  Disability due to low-back pain was reduced by 52.9% and neck pain by 48.4%.  This study demonstrated that under chiropractic care, patients with mechanical neck pain and/or low-back pain show significant improvement.

A study to evaluate the one-month outcomes of chiropractic patients versus patients taking anti-inflammatory drugs for back pain showed that the chiropractic patients had 5 times greater improvement than the anti-inflammatory group.  90% of the chiropractic patients claimed satisfaction with their care, while only 52% of the medical patients reported the same.
