The Growing Support for Chiropractic by the Medical Community

Top Medical groups now support chiropractic

People from all sides of the issuefrom patients to insurance companies and government agencies to providershave acknowledged openly the opioid epidemic. It has swept the nation leaving a large, regrettable footprint on the health of people all over. This is why more and more medical professionals are turning to conservative options first. The largest medical group in the world, the American College of Physicians cemented this in guidelines published in 2017 when they openly recommended conservative care—which includes chiropractic—for the treatment of low back pain.

Additionally, more medical guidelines coming out discourage the use of Ibuprofen and muscle relaxers before trying conservative care. In fact, further research into management of many musculoskeletal conditions has revealed that medications such as acetominophen (a common pain reliever often used for headaches) is no better than placebo. (Placebo means receiving a fake treatment, such as a sugar pill, believing it is the real treatment. Studies use this as a comparison for how well a treatment works.)

Today, medical professionals are working together with conservative and alternative medicine professionals such as Chiropractors to help patients get better in a safer manner. For years, Chiropractors have been ahead of their time as a driving force behind more effective, safe, and often superior options for managing musculoskeletal pain and injury. Here are some facts that support the use of Chiropractic for pain relief:
