back pain

Just one hour per week!

Great article here, by Harvey and colleagues, about how effective even just ONE hour per week of exercise is, in the prevention of depression. Depression is often a significant factor in physical symptoms such as neck pain, low back pain and headaches. Exercise may therefore be really helpful in helping to reduce these symptoms.

Spinal manipulative treatment helps acute low back pain

By | blog | No Comments

There was an interesting article published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It was a research study into the effectiveness of spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) for acute low back pain. The outcome of the study was very positive. What was really great (from our point of view) was the editorial encouraging medical doctors to refer patients with back pain for manipulative treatment. It was encouraging to see such a cooperative attitude towards the chiropractic profession. Thanks to Dr Richard Deyo MD, MPH!
