Over the Counter Drugs vs Chiropractic Care
Let’s look at the effectiveness of chiropractic care vs non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) for low back pain.
Low back pain is the number one cause for work disability, thus finding the most effective treatment could save a massive amount of money in healthcare costs and lost productivity.
A study published in the journal Spine investigated the effectiveness of an adjustment vs a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for low back pain.
The study found patients who had chiropractic care for low back pain were significantly better than patients who received NSAID treatment.
The chiropractor adjusted group also had faster and more improvement in physical disability and had less time off work.
Chiropractic care is a great way to manage and relieve pain caused by low back pain.
If you suffer from low back pain, regular adjustments offer effective, safe, non-invasive, and non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications.
Remember your best source for everything health is your chiropractor.
