Prevent Disabling Back Pain with Maintenance Chiropractic Treatment!
Doctors of Chiropractic have talked for years anecdotally that maintenance care – treating asymptomatic patients regularly before the symptoms come back – is an important part of being proactively healthy. Now a LARGE randomized controlled clinical trial has proven it!
This study (published in September 2018), tested the use of maintenance chiropractic care as a preventative measure for people with frequent Low Back Pain. Does receiving regular chiropractic manipulative therapy prior to experiencing any low back pain symptoms minimize time spent in pain?
“The Nordic Maintenance Care program: Effectiveness of chiropractic maintenance care versus symptom-guided treatment for recurrent and persistent low back pain—A pragmatic randomized controlled trial.
Background: For individuals with recurrent or persistent non-specific low back pain (LBP), exercise and exercise combined with education have been shown to be effective in preventing new episodes or in reducing the impact of the condition. Chiropractors have traditionally used Maintenance Care (MC), as secondary and tertiary prevention strategies. The aim of this trial was to investigate the effectiveness of MC on pain trajectories for patients with recurrent or persistent LBP.”
Here’s what it found!
Patients with chronic or frequently recurring low back pain who received proactive care suffered TWO WEEKS LESS of painful days in one year.
Don’t wait for the painful “flare up” that takes you out of commission for days, even weeks. This evidence proves that you can prevent disabling episodes of Low Back Pain.
Stay active and get routine chiropractic adjustments – you deserve to live a healthier, happier life!
What is Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy?
Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy is the process of realigning the spinal column through adjustments to the vertebrae. CMT uses non-invasive techniques to correct the positioning of the spine and restore proper function of the body.
