Spinal Manipulation for Low Back Pain
There is growing evidence that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for low back pain. A recent British Medical Journal publication found that Spinal Manipulation, what chiropractors sometimes call An Adjustment, is an effective treatment for Chronic Low Back Pain.
Other treatments are also effective. Particularly, exercise is an effective management strategy for low back pain. However, sometimes seeing a professional can bring pain relief, reassurance, and guidance towards the implementation of the exercise.
Fortunately, here at Riverside Chiropractic, we provide a multimodal approach to treatment. Spinal manipulation/Adjustments, soft tissue treatment, dry needling, exercise and advice are all part of our treatments so that you can feel better, and have the tools to self manage your condition.
