Baton Rouge Spinal Manipulation Relieves Back Pain

April 25, 2017

Spinal manipulation for back pain relief is “it,” and Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers has it. Spinal manipulation is popping up in ever more medical guidelines for back pain relief. Endorsements|Recommendations]3] are forthcoming for spinal manipulation in medical guidelines as a conservative, non-drug way to relieve back pain, especially in the wave of the opioid epidemic that many times begins with medications for back pain control. Today, spinal manipulation is “it”! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers delivers Baton Rouge spinal manipulation in a safe, gentle, relieving way with chiropractic Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Spinal Manipulation.

Non-Drug Care First for Back Pain

The latest medical back pain care guidelines released contain those from the American College of Physicians (internists). Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, these guidelines describe three types of back pain: acute/subacute, chronic, and non-responsive. For the acute/subacute/chronic back pain patients, spinal manipulation is a treatment course recommendation. (1) It’s non-invasive and non-pharmacological. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers adds that it’s effective! It’s evidence-based.

The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article recommending spinal manipulation.  One is a review of published randomized clinical trials. (Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers notes that these review studies are high level research!) This review centers on acute low back pain (pain that persists for up to 6 weeks). It reports that spinal manipulation exhibits modest improvement in pain and function with no adverse effects. (2) In contrast to recent reports of the opioid epidemic and the risk of oral steroids (3), no adverse effects is big! That should excite Baton Rouge back pain patients! The other is an editorial comment by a well-known medical doctor, Richard Deyo MD, who agrees that spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is appropriate and supplies at least equal if not better results than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). (4) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers points out that Baton Rouge chiropractic care with Cox Technic is evidence-based and safe and gentle.
