Suffering from Low Back Pain – The American College of Physicians recommends chiropractic, acupuncture and/or massage #Seattle #Chiropractor #backpain

When it comes to low back pain, our doctors and practitioners advocate treatments such as chiropractic, acupuncture and/or massage before taking a pill … so we like it when other practitioners such as the Harvard Health Publications and Medical School write and advocate other doctors and practitioners recommend this approach too too. Here is a snippet from a July 6, 2017 post …

“The American College of Physicians has just come out with new guidelines for the treatment of low back pain based on a review of more than 150 studies. The big news? Medications tend to have only temporary and modest benefits, so it makes sense to try something other than a pill. The specifics depend on the type and duration of back pain.

For new low back pain (lasting less than 12 weeks), try:

heat
massage
acupuncture
spinal manipulation, as with chiropractic care.

If these don’t work, NSAIDs or a muscle relaxant are reasonable options. But given their potential to cause side effects and their modest benefit, they aren’t the first choice.”
