AMA Validates Chiropractic!
Welcome to another HealthNews video news release brought to you by HealthNews.
In today’s news we ask the question, “Is the American Medical Association finally validating the benefits of chiropractic?”
In a recent study looking at the effectiveness and harms of spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) for acute low back pain, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the authors concluded:
-that spinal manipulative therapy provides “modest improvements” in both pain and function for up to 6 weeks and
-compared to the most recent studies on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) alternatives, spinal manipulative therapy proved to offer the best results.
Published in the same issue was an editorial by Dr. Richard A. Deyo, MD, MPH, who has dedicated several decades to the study of spine care. In his editorial, Dr. Deyo made the following points:
-30% of patients with back or neck pain seek chiropractic care.-59% of consumers surveyed by Consumer Reports were highly satisfied with chiropractic care compared to 55% for physical therapists and 34% for primary MDs.
Serious complications for low-back spinal manipulative therapy are very rare, while NSAIDs users commonly see renal and gastrointestinal adverse effects
Looking at the cost of drugs, surgery and their complications, chiropractic back pain patients had much lower overall treatment costs and fewer complications.
Although the American Medical Association (AMA) as an organization has not really validated chiropractic, its flagship journal’s recent articles has spoken loudly to AMA members and the world about one of the benefits of chiropractic care.
Remember you and your family can be as healthy as can be, and it’s never too soon to start receiving chiropractic care.
