HELP FOR LOWER BACK PAIN

Posted: 02.7.2018
A possible treatment for chronic lower-back pain may be the use of custom-made orthotics. A recent study of adults with lower-back pain (for longer than 3 months) found that the use of orthotics reduced pain by 34% and improved function by 18%. These numbers jumped to 40% and 32% respectively when the orthotics were combined with chiropractic therapies and massage. The American College of Physicians lists spinal manipulation as one of the treatments for acute and chronic low-back pain. Caution: Some conditions may preclude these therapies, so check with your doctor before starting chiropractic treatments.
