Stop Chronic Back Pain with Spinal Manipulation

spinal manipulation for chronic back pain
A person afflicted with back pain must find a healthy and effective means of treatment. One course of treatment that proves effective for many individuals afflicted with chronic back pain is spinal manipulation.

The Essentials of Spinal Manipulation
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is affiliated with the National Institutes of Health, spinal manipulation involves a professional practitioner using hands or an appropriate device to apply a specific amount of force to a joint of a person’s spine. The goal of the process, which is also known as spinal manipulative therapy, is to improve or enhance physical functioning and to relieve pain[1].

Spinal manipulation is provided by professionals that include chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopathic physicians, and medical doctors. Before a person selects such a practitioner, he or she should confirm the level of experience that professional has in providing this type of therapeutic treatment.

The Effectiveness of Spinal Manipulation
In 2011, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine reviewed 26 separate research studies involving the effectiveness of spinal manipulation. The review revealed that spinal manipulation represents an effective way of reducing back pain. In addition, the review of these studies revealed that spinal manipulation also enhanced a person’s overall functionality.
