CHIROPRACTIC PATIENTS NEED FEWER VISITS FOR LBP, COMPARED WITH PT PATIENTS

Patients with low-back pain (LBP) who undergo chiropractic care require significantly fewer office visits for LBP, compared with patients who receive physical therapy. These findings are from an investigation of 195 patients with LBP.

According to the report, patients received 4 weeks of either a form of chiropractic care (flexion-distraction) or a form of physical therapy (exercise program). The subjects were then followed for one year. “Weekly structured telephone interview questions regarded visitation of various health-care practitioners and the practice of self-care for low back pain.”

Findings showed that the physical therapy patients had significantly more health-care visits for LBP than the chiropractic patients. “Self-care was initiated by nearly every subject in both groups.
