New Study Supports Spinal Manipulation

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is applauding a new study from the Medical Research Council (MRC) that shows spinal manipulation - the primary form of care performed by doctors of chiropractic - combined with an exercise program offers effective treatment for those suffering from back pain. The study, published in the November 19, 2004 issue of the British Medical Journal, found that a collective approach to back pain treatment provided "significant relief of symptoms and improvements in general health." According to the ACA, the MRC study is one of a number of recent studies regarding chiropractic's effectiveness for back pain over traditional medical care.
