Chiropractic Care Helps Lessen Chronic Mechanical Spinal Pain

October 15, 2014

Chronic mechanical spinal pain can be very disruptive to your lifestyle and general sense of well-being. This form of pain can arise from an injury, a disease or simple wear and tear on the spine as you perform daily routines. Medication is often doled out immediately by physicians, while some people seek chiropractic care to ease their pain.

In several studies, chiropractic care lessened chronic mechanical spinal pain faster and with longer-lasting effects than with medication or acupuncture.

In one study, 40 patients were randomly assigned medication, acupuncture or chiropractic care for nine weeks. Using a special set of criteria to determine their pain levels, range of motion and ability to function, the patients had a follow-up one year after participating in the initial study. Remarkably, five out of seven patients in the chiropractic group reported significant improvements that were considered long term. In each of the other two groups, only one out of seven in each reported long term benefits.

Your doctor of chiropractic will perform a detailed analysis to determine the cause of your pain. With spinal adjustments, nutritional advice, exercise and other natural means, they’ll also create a chiropractic care plan specific to your needs. Spinal adjustments will be at the core of your plan because subluxations of the spine (misaligned vertebrae) can lead to pain or other symptoms and interfere with your body’s natural healing abilities. Relieving nerve interference with spinal adjustments also reduces, and in some cases, eliminates pain.
