A new study study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that although chiropractic & acupuncture were recommended over pharmacologic options for treating low back pain, the treatments were not covered by all insurance plans.

The authors recommended expansion of insurance benefits to “improve comprehensive, multimodal coverage of best-practice treatments for chronic low back pain.”

Trigger points in the multifidus muscle.

The multifidus muscle is a long muscle that travels the length of the spine. It has different actions on different parts of the spine. It extends and laterally flexes the cervical and lumbar spine, and rotates the thoracic spine. Trigger points in this muscle are common due to poor posture and bad movement mechanics. Trigger points in the lumbar area area are a common cause of low back pain. These lower points can also refer into the abdomen. Points that form in the cervical region will refer pain down the neck into the shoulder blade area.

Suffering from Dizziness?

Listen

Your brain processes 3 different inputs to establish your sense of balance: your inner ear, your eyes, and tiny pressure sensors that line the inside of the joints of your upper neck. Dizziness or “vertigo” arises when one or more of these balance systems malfunctions by sending the wrong information to your brain. A new studyhas confirmed that chiropractic care, exercise, and acupuncture can help those dizzy spells. So, if you or someone you know suffers from dizziness, call our office today!
