Chiropractic: Conservative Care First

Chiropractic: Conservative Care First

This Month Is National Chiropractic Month and the Message is Simple:  Chiropractic is Conservative Care and Conservative Care Is Sensible, Effective, Cost-Efficient!

Here is a little bit of information Dr. Brown-Ruegg found interesting in the latest Healthy Living newsletter published by the American Chiropractic Association.

The safety of the procedures that patients allow their health care providers to carry out on their bodies is of paramount importance. Because chiropractic care is non-invasive, it’s a good place to start. A well-respected review of the evidence in the Annals of Internal Medicine points to chiropractic care as one of the major nonpharmacologic therapies considered effective for acute and chronic low-back pain.1

Even the Journal of the American Medical Association got on the conservative care bandwagon, suggesting to patients that they consider looking into chiropractic care for treatment of back pain.2 A 2012 study found that spinal manipulation for neck and back pain was cost-effective used either alone or combined with other therapies.3

Another recent study based on Washington state workers found that only 1.5 percent of those who visited a doctor of chiropractic first for work related back pain later had surgery, compared to 42.7 percent of those who saw a surgeon first.4 Conservative care offers ways to reduce pain and muscle spasms. And it can frequently ease the sleep issues and depression that are common with back pain.
