Doylestown chiropractor reviews new study showing chiropractic more effective than NSAIDs for back pain.

If you are one of the nearly 80% of American’s that suffer from back pain, you know it’s not unusual for you to have a bottle of pain medication close by and take them like you are eating candy!  However while these OTC medications may temporarily take the edge off, recent research suggests they may be ineffective as a long-term treatment for back pain. Dr. Jeff McQuaite, a chiropractor in Doylestown, has found a new study from the journal Spine suggests that chiropractic treatments are more effective for back pain than pain medication.

There were 101 patients selected for this test from 5 different outpatient practices.  The patients receiving spinal adjustments saw faster and more substantial improvements than patients taking the pain medication. They also reported having a better quality of life after treatment than the patients on pain medications.

While there have been other studies showing how beneficial chiropractic is for back pain, this is the first one to show that chiropractic is more effective than medication.

If you would like more information on this study and how Dr. Jeff and his team at his Doylestown chiropractic office can help you, please feel free to contact them.
