-Reduced spinal range of motion and aberrant firing of postural stabilizing muscles are two primary causes of chronic spinal pain. Both of these biomechanical and physiological changes are affected by Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation.
-There is good evidence that individuals with lower cervical spine pain, of insidious onset, with reduced cervical rotation and pain on both sides, may experience reduction in pain and improved cervical rotation from upper Thoracic Spinal Manipulation.
-There are both short and long-term benefits to Spinal Manipulation and Exercise in the treatment of lower back pain. Strong evidence supports this as a cost-effective treatment for the management of lower back pain.
-When indicated, Thoracic Spine manipulation has been shown to produce immediate reduction in cervical spine pain.
-Some of the researched effects/benefits of Spinal Manipulation:
*Increased joint mobility
*Increased mechanoreceptor input, decreased c-fiber nociception
*More effective when coupled with stabilizing exercise
*High patient satisfaction
-Chiropractic has been shown to be effective in the treatment of:
*Chronic low back pain
*Acute low back pain
* Neck pain
