Chiropractic is now firmly established as a primary health-care profession where, according to the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 7 to 16 percent of people in the United Stated seek treatment each year.
Our profession has earned recognition for its remarkable effectiveness and its focus on natural, drug-free, non-invasive methods of treatment. Below summarises the effectiveness of chiropractic for some of the conditions we treat.
At Clontarf Chiropractic approximately 25% of our patients come to us with a chief complaint of low-back/pelvic pain or discomfort. This pain can be brought on by an accident, overuse, repetitive stress, emotional stress, or just everyday living.
Several studies have been conducted to determine the efficacy of spinal manipulation as a treatment for lower-back pain in general. One of these involved three chiropractic colleges in California, where researchers reported that
“the trend for spinal manipulation to produce better results than any form of treatment to which it was compared was consistent and strong.”
For 86% of the outcomes, spinal manipulation was more effective than any other treatment rendered for lower-back pain.
Clontarf chiropractic notes additional studies conducted both in and out of the United States yielded similar results, where patients reportedly recovered at a more rapid rate, had fewer relapses, and gained a new sense of confidence in their movement. Still more investigations have been conducted on the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for two sub-categories of lower-back pain: acute and chronic.
Other Treatments at Clontarf Chiropractic include:
- Acute lower back pain
- Chronic lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Head pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Infantile colic
In summary, the above-referenced studies indicate chiropractic is effective. It is important to note that the conditions discussed in this section are not the only conditions that Chiropractor in Dublin treat— this has simply been a sampling of studies that have been conducted to determine the efficacy of chiropractic.
