Do spinal adjustments work? Results. Chiropractic adjustment can be effective in treating low back pain, although much of the research done shows only a modest benefit — similar to the results of more-conventional treatments.
Can a chiropractor help with back pain? Nearly everyone suffers from back pain at some point. One treatment option is chiropractic care, which often includes spinal manipulation (also called manual manipulation), exercise advice, and self-care recommendations.
What is a chiropractor good for? Improves your posture. Reduces pain and improves range of motion of your spine and other joints. Reduces symptoms of chronic conditions like osteoarthritis. Treats minor neck or spine injuries, especially whiplash.
How often should you go to chiropractor? If you are experiencing relatively minor pain, your doctor may ask you to come in once or twice in quick succession during the first week or two, and then reduce visits to weekly after that. When a patient’s pain is not that intense or long-term, a few visits may be enough to make a major difference.
