003- The Award Winning CHIRO Research Article

This weeks episode focuses on the award winning CHIRO Research article.

The CHIRO study received the 2010 Outstanding Paper award from The Spine Journal in part because it is a randomized controlled trial which places the treatment of acute low back pain in a “real world” context. The authors found that the study “clearly supports” the use of Evidence Based Care which included chiropractic manipulation as a focal treatment. In this study the patient age range was 19-65 years. We both know that improving patient outcomes in the acute phase of injury is imperative because the development of chronic back pain often begins with poor outcomes during acute management. In my opinion this study exhibits why cooperation and co- management of acute back pain can lead to better outcomes for our patients.

In short, the authors found-

“The evidence-based care group demonstrated significantly greater improvements in reported function through 6 months follow up.”

“The results of this study demonstrated that in equivalent groups of patients with Acute Low Back Pain of less than 4 weeks duration, carefully controlled and comprehensive Clinical Practice Guideline based care was associated with greater improvement in terms of condition specific functioning at 16 weeks...”

“This study follows two previous studies conducted by our group that demonstrated that treatments commonly recommended by primary care physicians are often highly guideline discordant, and other studies have demonstrated that PCP’s are highly resistant to changing their patterns of practice for managing patients with Acute Low Back Pain.”
