Acute Pain: Spinal Manipulation
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) printed a review study of randomized clinical trials – high level research studies – about spinal manipulation
for relief of acute back pain (back pain up to 6 weeks in duration). This review reports that spinal manipulation provides modest improvement in pain and function with no serious adverse effects. (2)
JAMA also published an editorial by the esteemed medical doctor and author, Richard Deyo, MD, about spinal manipulation for back pain incorporating Paige’s study. The editorial clarifies that spinal manipulation treatment for acute low back pain
is fitting. Its use is in line with the American College of Physicians review and subsequent guideline. Spinal manipulation produces modest improvement in pain and function in the short-term compared with sham manipulation, usual care and other treatments. And of note, Deyo emphasizes that, of the trials reviewed by Paige et al and the American College of Physicians, none suggested that spinal manipulation care was less effective than conventional medical care (drugs, rest, etc.). SMT proved equal to or exceeded conventional care. (3)
Spinal Manipulation for Older Adults
An update to the evidence-based recommendations on the best practices for chiropractors to follow when caring for older adults with back pain reports that spinal manipulation contributes to the relief and overall care of these patients.
