Five Proven Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find a good chiropractic expert and restore the damage caused by years’ of poor posture, alas things aren’t so simple. The key is to realise the importance of taking a proactive approach towards health care. Stating that chiropractic remains the only treatment to prevent neuromuscular treatment is a tall order for many readers to accept, which is why we have compiled a list of medical research and studies in collaboration with experts from Kroll Care, revealing the true extent of therapeutic benefits of chiropractic treatment.
1: Sciatica – We recall the study published in the European Spine Journal highlighting how chiropractic treatments yielded out 72 percent success rate in treating sciatica compared to a 20 percent success from physical therapy and 50 percent corticosteroid injections.
2: Treating Lower Back and Neck Pains from the get-go- We start off with a famous study printed in the British Medical Journal back in 2003. The researchers collected a sample set of 183 random patients suffering from neck pain and assigned them to physiotherapy, spinal mobilization and counseling (Education about medicines and drugs) in a 552-week study. The clinical results highlighted that patients administrated with chiropractic treatment made faster recovery than general counseling and physiotherapy. Additionally, the total costs of the chiropractic treatments cost roughly one-third of as compared to general counseling and physiotherapy.
Moving on, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine carried out a study to draw an analysis of the effectiveness different techniques to treat neck pains; the study was conducted on 272 participants, who were divided into three groups who were administrated to spinal manipulation therapy from a professional chiropractic, exercise recommendations or medication. The clinical results, compiled after 12 weeks of trial runs revealed that about 57 percent of the patients subjected to manipulation therapy by a DC and 48 percent who exercised reported a mighty 75 percent decrease in their pains.
Add another research published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that patients with Chronic Lower Back Pain administrated to a chiropractic treatment showed remarkable improvement in mobility and Pain Management.
3: A solution to Tension and Migraine – Second only to Lower Back Pain, headaches remains the in the illustrious band of most commonly occurring conditions being managed by chiropractors. As per some circles, a group trial conducted a few years ago revealed that about 22 percent of the patients suffering from the chronic headaches saw the attacks drop by a shocking 90 percent, while 49 percent of the patients admitted that they feel a lot better after going through chiropractic treatment.
4: An Unconventional cure to Ear and Colic Infections – Contrary to popular belief studies published in several iterations of the Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics reveal that chiropractic treatments reduce the colic symptoms in the majority of patients. It may seem hard to believe but considering the scores of documented case studies highlighting the children suffering from ear infections, colic, and acid reflux have experienced near perfect results and treatment of their ailments after just a couple of sessions.
5: Putting a leash on Blood Pressure – Some of you might remember George Bakris, one of the most renowned experts on hypertension; he published a story in collaboration with a team of researchers back in 2007 proving that one administration of upper cervical chiropractic adjustment had the uncannily similar result to that of two blood-pressure-lowering drugs. What’s so special about this discovery?
- The results of one chiropractic treatment last a/bout five to six months
- Compared to medicated patients the chiropractic treatment saw a remarkable decrease of 14 mm Hg in blood pressure readings.
