Spinal Manipulation Endorsed for Back
Pain…Chiropractors are Skilled
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality 2020 Report states
that spinal manipulation is among the effective, non-invasive,
non-pharmacological treatments for low back pain relief that enhanced
function and/or pain for over one month. (1) Acupuncture, MBSR, exercise, low level
laser therapy, yoga, psychotherapy, massage were also on
the list. The chiropractic profession has back pain
specialists who competently provide spinal
manipulation. Chiropractic education focuses on the management
of spine pain and delivery of spinal manipulation. Many folks consider chiropractic for back pain relief. 22 million
Americans see chiropractors each year. 35% do that
for back pain relief after sports and accident injuries, and muscle strains. Neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, and headache
are other spine related problems people for which they go
to chiropractors. (2) 15% of Australians see
a chiropractor annually. (3) 4.5 million Canadians visit

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise the Quadratus Lumborum
The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is
a paired muscle on both sides of the abdominal
wall. It’s a deep muscle and typically thought
of as a back muscle as it extends from the 12th rib to
the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae. When
contracted, the quadratus lumborum triggers lateral flexion
of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) Various bridge-type exercises are being examined as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s dual
layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor
control of the lumbar pain and prevent back pain. (6) Vancouver Disc Centers
and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such
exercise at your next Vancouver chiropractic visit to Vancouver Disc Centers.
