Chiropractic Helps Recurrent Low Back Pain

Investigators in Norway found that patients being treated for long lasting or recurrent low back pain report improvement early in the course of chiropractic treatment. 158 patients participated in the study where information on low back pain status was collected on each visit (maximum of 12 visits). Approximately 50 percent of patients reported that they had "improved" at the 4th visit and within two weeks. At the 12th visit (earlier if treatment was concluded before then), approximately 75 percent of the patients reported that "improvement" had occurred.
