Lower Back Pain Treatment,Barnes Chiropractic Fountainville, Doylestown PA
Journal of the American Medical Association Recommends Chiropractic for Lower Back Pain Treatment
The announcement was caught in a press release posted on the American Chiropractic Associations website http://www.acatoday.org/press_css.cfm?CID=5185 on 5/18/2013. The information released reinforces chiropractic’s long standing call for conservative measures as the first line of treatment for muscle and joint complaints and avoidance of higher risk medication, injections and surgery.
Back surgeries go wrong so many times that it has been given its own name Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, and its own diagnostic code 722.8. It causes a permanent change to your physical structure and there is no going back. Failures happen so often that medical back specialists are discouraging the use of surgery as a therapeutic technique for patients with back pain http://www.docguide.com/failed-back-syndrome-disturbing-statistics-presented-dg-dispatch-aapm . Research additionally reveals that chiropractic care provides more relief and faster results than commonly prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication for lower back pain http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23026869 .
Spinal needle injection therapy has become a popular alternative medical therapy following the failed back surgery syndrome rates. In this approach steroids are injected into the joints of the spine in an attempt to provide relief. If it works results are temporary. Complications includes weakening of the ligament and joint structure by inhibiting fibroblast formation. These are cells that are used in healing http://www.benthamscience.com/open/torehj/articles/V006/1TOREHJ.pdf.
Chiropractic health care has been around since 1895 which is before medicine started its organizational roots in 1910. Its safety cannot be equaled by medical surgeries, medications or injections. Chiropractic not only has proven results but studies also show chiropractic is safer and patients have higher levels of satisfaction with their chiropractic doctors, their treatments and their outcomes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16904491
