The Lancet Research Paper: Update

Time after time the research shows that chiropractic care should be the first-line intervention for low back pain. “Chiropractors are well placed to provide evidence-based non-pharmacological care for their patients with low back pain, including advice about physical activity, applying judicious manual therapy, education that supports self-management, and a graded return to normal activities and exercise.”

It’s time to move away from surgery, scans and strong painkillers and instead focus on what works.

This is why it is so important to us that we are an evidence-based chiropractic clinic, delivering care that is supported by a growing body of high-quality research. That means you know the care you’re receiving is of the highest standard and is what’s recommended and proven effective for your condition.

What The Chiropractic Research Council Say

“If you haven’t caught up with the Lancet Low Back Pain Series, this article, published today in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies, provides a succinct summary of how much of a global problem low back pain is, how poorly it is currently being managed by healthcare systems around the world, and what needs to be done about it.

The authors suggest ways in which the chiropractic profession might be able to help alleviate this burden:

“…The main message of these papers support an evidence-based chiropractic approach as a reasonable first line approach for patients with low back pain…

…Chiropractors are well placed to provide evidence-based non-pharmacological care for their patients with low back pain, including advice about physical activity, applying judicious manual therapy, education that supports self-management, and a graded return to normal activities and exercise…”

The authors also highlight the challenges and limitations that face us as a profession; potential barriers that may hinder us from potentiating this opportunity to help alleviate the global burden of low back pain.”
