American Medical Association Now Recommends Spinal Manipulative Therapy for Lower Back Pain​

Glendora Chiropractor Dr. John H. Hunt has reason to celebrate.  The AMA, or American Medical Association, one of the big guns in traditional medicine, has published an analysis of 15 different studies that have been conducted on patients with back pain and concluded that SMT or spinal manipulation therapy, a treatment that is used by chiropractors by adjusting the spine, is statistically more effective than most traditional methods.  The study states that many treatments exist for acute lower back pain, and most of them are designed to relieve symptoms while the body naturally heals, and finds that SMT does indeed help patients with their symptoms.

This review, along with another systematic review and a set of clinical guidelines published by the American College of Physicians, are both very important for chiropractic because it encourages physicians to work with chiropractors, allowing a broader range of treatment options to be integrated into one treatment plan for their patients.  There are now more tools available than ever before to help patients tackle the complexities of their lower back pain.

Having trouble getting relief for your lower back pain?  Each person who comes seeking lower back pain relief in Glendora arrives with a different combination of problems that cause their pain.  Most lower back pain occurs without there being an identifiable reason for it.  Treating lower back pain is therefore often a complex process for any medical professional to tackle, requiring a great deal of customization, and often patience and the ability to try out different treatments until they find one, or a combination, that works.  More than 200 treatments are available to traditional medicine for this reason.  SMT is available through your local Glendora chiropractor, and may just be the treatment that helps the healing begin.
