Chiropractic Better Than Hospital Outpatient Management of Low Back Pain

Research appearing in the British Medical Journal (1995; 311:349-351), studied 741 men and women between the ages of 18 and 64 suffering from low back pain. Spinal manipulation was not contraindicated in any of the subjects. According to total Oswestry questionnaire scores, patients treated by chiropractors experienced nearly 30% more improvement than the patients treated by the hospitals.
