Today, spinal manipulation is “it”! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic delivers McHenry 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 embrace 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 is non-invasive and non-pharmacological. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic adds that it’s effective! It’s evidence-based.

The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article endorsing spinal manipulation.  One is a review of published randomized clinical trials. (OrthoIllinois Chiropractic notes that these review studies are high level research!) This review focuses 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 danger of oral steroids (3), no adverse effects is impressive! McHenry back pain sufferers have hope! The other is an editorial comment by a well-known medical doctor, Richard Deyo MD, who concurs that spinal manipulation for acute low back pain is suitable and delivers at least equal if not better results than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). (4) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic remarks that McHenry chiropractic care with Cox Technic is evidence-based and safe and gentle.
