Here in our Singapore office, Dr. Stakes has helped several patients recover from back problems. If you suffer from back pain, you've most likely been tempted to take drugs to relieve the pain. You should recognize that research shows that chiropractic is often a better choice than drugs when it comes to relieving this specific type of problem.
In a 2013 study published in the medical journal Spine researchers included 101 people who had suffered back pain for more than 48 hours. Each person was then assigned to one of three groups. The first group, which consisted of 37 people, received chiropractic care and a placebo of the non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac. The second group of 38 participants received sham chiropractic treatments and the genuine drug. The third group of 25 people served as the control as those individuals received sham chiropractic care and also received the placebo, thus having no real care whatsoever.
All of the people who received some form of treatment, whether through chiropractic or the drug diclofenac, fared better than the control group who had no real treatment. However, when the two active groups were compared to each other, the people who received chiropractic had results that were "significantly better" than those who took the drug.
Because chiropractic is non-invasive and doesn't use drugs, it helps promote healing without negative side effects. For instance, NSAIDs can result in ulcers, hypertension, and other serious health concerns. Plus, the health benefits of chiropractic last longer as it's purpose designed to resolve the source of the problem, not just treat the signs and symptoms.
