Safety of the Chiropractic Adjustment Evaluated by Tissue Damage Markers- by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Just last year, Disease Markers released a study which examined tissue damage markers after patients received a chiropractic adjustment.  As we know, the safety of the chiropractic adjustment is a primary concern to both patients' and their primary care physicians. This study looked at tissue damage markers pre-treatment, post-treatment, and post-treatment +2 hours.  The treatment groups included a control group, a group receiving a cervical spine adjustment, and a group receiving a thoracic spine adjustment. 

“Our data show no changes in any of the studied damage markers.” 

As you can see below, the researchers found no indication of tissue damage after patients received a chiropractic adjustment. This is a great study to present to your local referral partners. Pro-actively addressing concerns regarding safety is key when developing referral relationships with other local health care providers.

Risk of Traumatic Injury 76% Lower Visiting a Chiropractor than a Primary Care Physician- by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Just today SPINE released an epub ahead of print which found, "Among Medicare beneficiaries aged 66-99 with an office visit risk for a neuromusculoskeletal problem, risk of injury to the head, neck or trunk within 7 days was 76% lower among subjects with a chiropractic office visit as compared to those who saw a primary care physician."

That is a startling difference in risk. While, in my opinion, the safety and efficacy of chiropractic care is well documented, it took me by surprise to see the dramatic results of this study. 

Below I have included a direct link to the Pubmed page. What are your thoughts on this new research? 


When Should I See a Chiropractor? by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Eight out of ten people will experience back pain at some point in their life, and at least one third of the people in our community have back pain at any given time. For many people, the pain can keep them away from work, school, or even their day-to-day activities. If pain causes interruptions and restrictions in the activities of your daily life then you should consult a health care provider.

Chiropractors are highly educated and extensively trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat conditions disorders of the spine, joints, muscle and nervous systems. These disorders may include back pain, neck pain, headaches, referred pain in your arms and legs, etc. Many patients seek chiropractic treatment for wellness care. Others, like seniors, find that treatment helps them to maintain mobility and good range of motion.

Pain should never become a way of life, especially when qualified help is available.
