New research indicates that approximately one in four individuals suffering and recovering from acute (occurring suddenly) low back pain will have another episode of low back pain within the subsequent 12 months. Worse yet, predicting which individuals will likely have a recurrence is extremely difficult. This is why most chiropractic experts recommend not only getting yourself immediately checked out when back pain arises, but additionally recommend periodic spinal checkups to ensure your spine remains healthy, ultimately reducing the risk of.... <view entire article>

A new study published in the prestigious international medical journal Spine indicates that spinal injection therapy used to treat subacute and chronic low back pain has questionable effectiveness and lacks research evidence. Researchers reviewed 18 previously conducted trials on spinal injections to the epidural area, joints of the spine as well as injections into the spinal muscles.

A recent study found patients with identified spinal facet arthritis on a computed tomography (CT) scan - arthritis within the joints between the vertebrae of the spine - had no association to low back pain (LBP). In other words, those with visible arthritis of spine were no more likely to be suffering from back pain as compared with those who did not have visible arthritis of the spine.

Neck pain with or without arm pain is one of the most common reasons to visit a chiropractor. However, many avoid seeking care for some time or wait until their pain becomes unbearable, hoping somehow that the pain will simply disappear. While in some cases the pain and discomfort does in fact go away, in a great number of those cases, it eventually resurfaces. Fortunately, most cases of neck pain can be successfully managed in a safe, non-invasive way. Some.... <view entire article>

While many have specific reasons when starting an exercise program, the original reason behind initiating an exercise program may not be enough to sustain exercising long-term. New research indicates that similar to yo-yo dieting, many who start exercising have a difficult time sticking to exercising in a long-term fashion. For example, individuals who purchased home exercise equipment had a 73 percent increased likelihood they would start exercising as compared with those who did not. However, these same individuals were no.... <view entire article>

While research has shown just one exercise session has its benefits, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recommends adults obtain 2.5 hours of exercise per week. For children, a minimum of one hour of "run and play" per day is recommended. The latest statistics released in July 2008 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state approximately 26 percent of U.S. adults are medically obese. Worse yet, one quarter of U.S. adults are completely inactive with.... <view entire article>

Other studies have also been successful in showing single exercise sessions to be beneficial for metabolic health. Obviously,.... <view entire article>

Like many sources of LBP, chiropractic care has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment, even for expecting mothers.

A newly published study in the Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics reconfirms the safety of chiropractic care by reporting, "The best evidence suggests that chiropractic care is a useful therapy for subjects with neck or low-back pain for which the risks of serious adverse events should be considered negligible." In a review of the current literature, researchers found that even the most adverse events associated spinal manipulation, a primary procedure used by the majority of chiropractors, are benign and self-limiting..... <view entire article>
