CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELPS ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY WITH LOW BACK PAIN
Study Published in Spine Magazine Shows Chiropractic Care Helps Active Duty Military with Lower Back Pain
Patient with acute low back pain receiving a combination of chiropractic manipulative therapy and standard medical care experienced a statistically and clinically significant reduction in their back pain and improved physical functioning when compared to those receiving standard medical care alone, reports an article in the April 15 issue of Spine.
Participants in the study were 91 active-duty military personnel between the ages of 18 and 35 years old.
Col. Richard Petri is the Chief of the Interdisciplinary Pain Management Center (IPMC) at WBAMC. "This is a significant step for recognizing the value of chiropractic care in the military," he said. "Continued research in this area will ultimately result in better healthcare delivery systems as well as the improved health of our beneficiaries."
