The Facts on Back Pain and Weather- by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

New research from Australia has found that acute low back pain is not linked to weather conditions.  They looked at temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind direction, and precipitation as factors which may lead to an increased likelihood of the onset of back pain.  

Back pain currently affects up to 70 million American everyday, and many individuals point to the weather as a reason for why their back is "acting up".  While cold, rainy weather may not inspire us to get moving and exercise, it appears as though it does not directly contribute to back pain!

Adding Chiropractic to Standard Medical Care Provides Astounding Results- by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Adding chiropractic care to standard medical care provides SIGNIFICANTLY better results for low back pain than standard medical care alone.  This 2013 study from SPINE found that, "“The results of this trial suggest that Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy in conjunction with standard medial care offer a significant advantage for decreasing pain and improving physical functioning when compared to standard care alone, for men and women between the ages of 18-35 with acute low back pain".  

The global improvement questionnaires show that the chiropractic patients had greater improvements and only a few reported worsening conditions.  However, the standard medical group saw only a few people get better, with most of the patients getting worse.  This study clearly shows that patients receiving a combination of medical care and chiropractic care have superior improvements when compared to those only receiving medical care.
