Spinal Manipulation and Chiropractic Research

Many studies have consistently reported beneficial responses to spinal manipulation, such as that performed by a doctor of chiropractic.

According to the Scientific Commission of the CCGPP:

  • Strong evidence supports spinal manipulation increasing function and reducing symptoms of acute and subacute lower back pain
  • Strong evidence supports spinal manipulation/mobilization reducing chronic back pain symptoms and improving function
  • Good evidence exists supporting exercise in conjunction with spinal manipulation to accelerate and improve outcomes and reduce the recurrence of episodes of back pain
  • Fair evidence supports spinal manipulation for lower back pain, radiating leg pain,sciatica or radiculopathy.1

See Chiropractic Treatments for Lower Back Pain

Spinal Manipulation Treatment Recommendations

The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) recommends treating lower back pain with spinal manipulation:

  • In the first four weeks of symptoms
  • With or without non-prescription pain killers
  • In conjunction with mild exercise such as walking or swimming, followed by conditioning exercises after about two weeks.2
