10. Back Pain Relief During Pregnancy – As a baby grows inside a woman’s uterus, the added weight and increased bulk in the abdomen force the lower back to curve, which can lead to mild to severe back pain for most women. In a research study, it was found that on average, pain started at roughly 21 weeks, and lasted approximately three weeks. The women involved had analyses done by doctors of chiropractic and spinal adjustments were performed, according to the findings. Of the women studied, only one found no significant difference in her pain levels. None of the women had any side effects from the chiropractic care. In the end, chiropractic is a safe and effective means of dealing with back pain during pregnancy.

11. Spinal Adjustments Improve Quality of Life for Older Adults – Until recently, there has been very little research done regarding chiropractic care for adults aged 55-88. In a study recently conducted comparing two types of spinal adjustments, it was found that while there was no significant difference between the two methods, people did report greatly reduced back pain, a general sense of well-being and lower disability. With more than half of our aging population dealing with chronic back pain and increasing disability, chiropractic care can improve their quality of life and help restore function.

12. Chiropractic is the Best Option for Teens with Back Pain – Neglecting to address back pain in teens can lead to chronic pain conditions in adulthood. Since a teen’s body is growing and maturing, invasive surgeries and potentially addictive medications should be a last resort. Extensive research has proven chiropractic care to be effective at relieving pain and decreasing mobility restrictions.
