“The presence of spinal pain in young people has been established as a risk factor for spinal pain later in life”, according to a study published in Pub Med.
Recent clinical practice guidelines recommend spinal manipulation, as well as other modalities that are common treatments provided by chiropractors, as interventions for spine pain. The Pub Med study analyzed the data of young people, aged 10-24, from the Mount Carmel Clinic chiropractic program database. The results showed both statistically and clinically significant improvement on the numeric pain rating scale following chiropractic care.
In conclusion, this study provides evidence that chiropractic care is a viable conservative pain management option for young people.
