Late in 2023, the World Health Organization released its guidelines on the management of chronic low back pain. Chronic low back pain is a serious issue — it’s the number one cause of disability around the world.

As is most often the case when scientific evidence is scrutinized, chiropractic care, using spinal adjustments, emerged as one of the methodologies the WHO recommended based on the scientific evidence.

They made other suggestions, too, including therapeutic exercise (core strength, anyone?) and topical application of capsaicin (derived from hot peppers.)

Sadly, medical doctors find it difficult to follow guidelines when confronted with chronic low back pain.
