Spinal manipulation is an effective option for alleviating lower back pain. A study published in April 2017 in the Journal of the American Medical Association offers the latest evidence that spinal manipulation can offer a modestly effective alternative for back pain. Researchers analyzed 15 studies involving more than 1700 people with acute back pain. For comparing spinal manipulation with traditional care the patients were divided into groups. Some were given spinal manipulative therapy while others were given traditional care that included education physical therapy and medications. The outcome was spinal manipulation led to small but measurable improvements in pain and better overall function compared with traditional care. Patients who had spinal manipulation experienced a decline of 1 point in their pain rating. The researchers point out that this is about the same amount of pain relief as from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen. In Brooklyn pain management centers chiropractic care may be provided in conjunction with other modalities such as epidural steroid trigger point and facet joint injections Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation TENS physical therapy disc compression NSAIDs heat and cold application Game Ready cold compression therapy and radiofrequency radio ablation.
