Is Chiropractic an Effective Low Back Pain Treatment?

Written By Absolute Chiropractic & Rehab on July 24, 2019

Woman with low back pain in Fort WorthUp to 70% of adults in industrialized countries will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. Without proper proactive treatment, acute pain will often develop into chronic low back pain.

Over 22 million Americans visit a chiropractor each year and over a third of them – 35% – are seeking relief from low back pain. There’s a good reason for this.

Chiropractic care provides a comprehensive and personalized low back pain treatment because it targets your condition at its source for long term relief.

Why Should You Choose Chiropractic Care?

Over-the-counter medications and opioids do nothing to treat your pain – they just temporarily cover it up. Plus, opioids are dangerous: 130 Americans die from unintentional overdose each day on average.

That’s why in 2017, the American College of Physicians updated their guidelines, recommending spinal adjustments, massage, and other drug-free treatments as a first line of defense against acute and chronic low back pain.

Chiropractic care is non-invasive and effective; your Fort Worth chiropractor wants to help you avoid painful surgery. Studies show that spinal manipulation provides relief from low back pain – especially when combined with massage and lifestyle changes.
