MAY 2013 – JAMA Journal of the American Medical Association.

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests patients try chiropractic services for the treatment of low back pain.   According to the article, surgery is not usually needed and should only be considered if more conservative therapies fail. The information in JAMA reinforces the American Chiropractic Association’s (ACA) position that conservative care options should serve as a first line of defense against pain.

The article, part of JAMA’s Patient Page public education series, explains that the back is made up of bones, nerves, muscles and other soft tissues such as ligaments and tendons that support posture and give the body flexibility. Back pain can be caused by problems with any of the structures in the back.

As neuromusculoskeletal experts, chiropractic physicians are particularly well suited to manage and help prevent low back pain.

Jerry Rice Shares His Personal Successes with Chiropractic.

 

MARCH 2009:
Painkiller studies were faked…turns out 21 studies and journal articles supporting the use of Vioxx, Celebrex, and other COX2 painkillers were based on fake data.  The results were not just skewed, the research was just not done, there were no studies. Scott Rubin made up the stuff, published it and no one checked; for 12 years.

The WAS THE research that lead surgeons, etc. to switch from old-fashioned NSAIDS (no money in it) and narcotics (even less money), to COX-2 inhibitors (lots of money for Pfizer and the trickle down) for post-operative pain management.  Looks as though the use of these drugs actually slowed recover time for millions of patients.

A $2.75 BILLION

BETTER

OPTION

TO BACK SURGERY

Spinal manipulation was proven just as effective as microdiskectomy (surgery) for patients experiencing sciatica secondary to lumbar disk herniation.

More that 200,000 microdiskectomies are performed annually in the United States, at a direct cost of $5 billion, or $25,000 per procedure. If cost is assumed at $100 per Chiropractic visit, there is a direct, total savings of $22,900 per manipulation patient. System-wide, this could save $2.75 billion dollars annually.

From Our Patients

They treat you like a friend and not just another face in the office.

After my first appointment I was so impressed I also made an appointment for my daughter, Anika. Over time my adjustments lasted longer and longer.I still come in once a week even though my shoulder is feeling so much better. Chiropractic care has helped me with so much more than what I originally came in for. I look forward to every appointment. ~Amber Tolman
