Chiropractic for Acute Low Back Pain


According to the European Spine Journal, Chiropractic care was proven to be an effective treatment for acute back pain (pain that occurs suddenly and is often more sharp and severe).

“The European Spine Journal published guidelines for treating acute LBP and Radiculopathy:

o Employ: Manual therapy, exercise, and patient education about prognosis, warning signs, and advice to remain active.

o Avoid: routine use of imaging, extra-foraminal steroid injections, acetaminophen, NSAIDs, and opioids.

If you or someone you know suffers from back pain, follow the proven advice and call our office today.”
