Because it’s mainstream.  Or at least should be.

Here’s the latest from a study of lower back pain among the employees of a large company. They tracked the use of healthcare resources among all employees with lower back problems.

  • People who chose to manage their problem by using a chiropractor as their main intervention fared better than those choosing other paths.
  • Among those who chose to see a chiropractor, those who started within the first two weeks of pain onset did better and cost their company less money overall than those who waited for more than 2 weeks
  • Of the different types of practitioners (primarily DC’s, MD’s, and PT’s) doctors of chiropractic conformed to published, accepted treatment guidelines the most consistently.

Bottom Line: See your chiropractor first for back pain.  And the sooner the better.

Dr. Lavine has been an innovator in the use of movement and touch to promote health since 1981. He practices in New York City and Princeton, NJ.
