A study published in Spine, tested which method worked better to treat chronic spine pain, acupuncture, spinal manipulation, or drugs.
Method: 115 patients randomly assigned to receive either manipulation, drugs (Celebrex, Vioxx, or paracetamol), or acupuncture.
Results: “chiropractic manipulation patients did better than both drugs and acupuncture.”
The patients in the manipulation group reported 47% improvement as compared to 15% for the acupuncture group and 18% for the medicine group. The improvement was not limited to just back pain, but also included improvement of one’s overall health.
