“Is the American Medical Association Finally Validating the Benefits of Chiropractic?”
Hi! I’m Dr William Norlin. I’m your Mpls/St. Paul Chiropractor and your source of everything health. I found a great article that asks the question “Is the American Medical Association finally validating the benefits of Chiropractic?” that I’d like to share with you. If you have any questions about this information, or anything else that is a health goal or challenge for you or someone you may know, feel free to me a call at 612 724-4647. OK! Let’s get started!
In a recent study looking at the effectiveness and harms of spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) for acute low back pain, published in the Journal
of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the authors concluded:
-that spinal manipulative therapy provides “modest improvements” in both pain and function for up to 6 weeks and
-compared to the most recent studies on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) alternatives, spinal manipulative therapy proved to offer
the best results.
And by the way, stick with me thru this video to the end, and I’ll direct you to a source for other great information about health related topics.
Published in the same issue was an editorial by Dr. Richard A. Deyo, MD, MPH, who has dedicated several decades to the study of spine care.
In his editorial, Dr. Deyo made the following points:
-30% of patients with back or neck pain seek chiropractic care.
-59% of consumers surveyed by Consumer Reports were highly satisfied with
chiropractic care compared to 55% for physical therapists and 34% for primary MDs.
Serious complications for low-back spinal manipulative therapy are very rare, while NSAIDs users commonly see renal and gastrointestinal adverse effects .
Looking at the cost of drugs, surgery and their complications, chiropractic back pain patients had much lower overall treatment costs and fewer complications.
Although the American Medical Association (AMA) as an organization has not really validated chiropractic, its flagship journal’s recent articles has spoken loudly to AMA members and the world about one of the benefits of chiropractic care.
