Low Back Pain

Ongoing low back pain also known as chronic low back pain is a common occurrence in the world today. Statistics have suggested that low back pain has been experienced by 80% of the UK population (1).

Below we will look at some strategies to help.

In a recent study researches looked at treating 3 groups of patients with spinal manipulation (2).

1) received ‘fake’ spinal manipulation for 12 treatments

2) received spinal manipulation for 12 treatments

3) received spinal manipulation for 12 treatments and fortnightly visits of spinal manipulation for the next 9 months

Group 1 reported no relief from treatments

Groups 2 & 3 reported significant relief

Further research has determined spinal manipulation and adjustments to be safe and a successful way of treating chronic low back pain (3),
