Physical and Chiropractic Therapy

Chronic low back pain is also often addressed with physical therapy and chiropractic. The problem is is we don't really have good data about either one. And just recently I was fascinated to read an article in spine that talked about people with chronic low back pain that it occurred at work and whether or not physical therapy that was specifically designed to sort of look at their work and then tailor the physical therapy appropriate to their improvement, showed absolutely no difference over generic physical therapy in terms of improvement. So it can be tough. And that brings us back again to where I started that some people will get some better by some of our interventions.
