Chiropractic Care Helpful for Reducing Back Discomfort

Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation Found Effective during Treatment of Low Back Issues in Alpharetta

Most of us suffer from lower back pain at some point in our lives. Researchers estimate that nearly 1 out of 3 adults deal with some kind of regular spinal discomfort. Dr. Berklich and our talented staff see many back pain cases in our Alpharetta office, and we've found that chiropractic care is a great way to not only help you heal from back pain, it's also an excellent way to avoid future problems.

Research Shows Chiropractic Therapy Helps With Chronic Back Injuries

A recent article from the University of Utah confirms what our Alpharetta patients have reported: your Alpharetta chiropractor is the best first choice for an event of back issue.

In this study, 747 patients were treated for low back issue. Each person was evaluated based on the first person they sought treatment with, whether it was a primary care physician, a chiropractor, or a physiotherapist.

What the researchers found is that the subjects who first saw a chiropractor had fewer advanced imaging tests and fewer surgeries.

Other papers have found the same results. A 2012 study reported that chiropractic patients had the best functional recovery and pain relief for chronic back pain.

Chiropractic works by restoring the natural, pain-free function of your spine. Dr. Berklich and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.
