A potentially earth-shattering study relating to the practice of chiropractic was released last year and you may not have heard about it...until now. SPINE Journal emphatically stated that maintenance (at a frequency of 2x month) adjustments to the lumbar spine may prevent future episodes of lumbar spine pain.
Pain (VAS Score) and disability (Oswestry) scores were significantly reduced with the group receiving maintenance treatment. In their own words, "we suggest that maintained SM is beneficial to patients with chronic nonspecific LBP, particularly those who gain improvement after initial intensive manipulation to maintain the improved post-treatment pain and disability levels."
When powerful research such as this is produced for prescription medications, the pharm reps are banging down the door of every medical practitioner in the country. However, aside from our promotion at The Evidence Based Chiropractor, I have not seen a single chiropractic organization mount a campaign which promotes this research to other medical providers.
As chiropractors, we have an abundance of high-quality research which needs to be promoted and not left dormant! This library of research will continue to build and it will be our task to make sure that others are aware of the value of our care.
We have assisted hundreds of chiropractors (just like you) around the globe build referral relationships with other physicians. Dr. Langmaid literally wrote the book on interdisciplinary referrals ("Marketing Chiropractic to Medical Doctors" is available worldwide on iBooks). We are the unrivaled leaders in interdisciplinary outreach and marketing for a reason.
