Chiropractic Adjustments Helpful for Reducing Back Issues

Chiropractic Adjustments Shown to Be Effective for Treating Low Back Issues in Harrisburg

Most of us suffer from back pain at some point in our lives. Researchers estimate that nearly 1 out of 3 adults deal with some kind of regular spinal problem. Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and our talented staff see many back pain cases in our Harrisburg office, and we've found that chiropractic care is an effective way to not only help you recover from back pain, it's also an excellent way to prevent future problems.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Chronic Back Discomfort

A recent paper from the University of Utah verifies what our Harrisburg patients have experienced: your Harrisburg chiropractor is the best first choice for an event of back discomfort.

In this article, 747 patients were treated for low back problem. Each person was assessed based on the first person they sought treatment with, whether it was a primary care physician, a chiropractor, or a physiotherapist.

What the authors found is that the individuals who first saw a chiropractor had fewer advanced imaging tests and fewer surgical procedures.

Other studies have found the same results. A 2012 study reported that chiropractic patients had the best functional recovery and pain relief for chronic back pain.

Chiropractic works by restoring the natural, pain-free function of your spine. Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.
