We’ve been providing chiropractic care for patients in Midtown Manhattan for years. We have the knowledge and experience behind us along with the thousands of happy patients who are no longer in pain. We know chiropractic care works and patients do as well. For many of the medical community, chiropractic care has been looked down upon for many years. There’s many reasons for this including not really understanding what the therapy does and probably most significantly, the impact and opinion of the pharmaceutical industry and its lobbying with regards to the potential threat that chiro might have on its bottom line.
But in the spring of 2017, an article published in the New York Times by Aaron E. Carroll, professor of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine wrote a piece where he has changed his mind about the positive impacts of chiropractic care. In fairness, early studies did not particularly show much difference in chiropractic care, but those studies were neither in depth nor analyzed as many patients as more recent studies have.
While we at Back & Body Medical have always been aware of the impact chiro does have on people, it is finally good to see others in the industry realize the power it does have.
The article by Professor Carroll begins with the statement that he may have had the wrong attitude towards chiropractic care for back pain and then goes into the reasons why he originally thought this. Moving through the article he then produces several newer studies with a greater in depth analysis and greater quantity of patients in control groups in order to get a bigger picture of what chiropractic care can do.
More and more doctors are seeing the light and seeing what chiropractic care can do for patients. You only need to look at reviews for chiropractic offices across the country to see how many people are finding relief from the therapy. This is as good a testimony as you will see anywhere. You can see our reviews yourself right here as another example.
Chiropractic care certainly does work and its benefits are numerous. The biggest benefit is that care is conservative, there’s no invasive procedures and it is very safe. Furthermore, there are little to no side effects, unlike with taking pain medication, so the body focuses on getting better rather than getting better and dealing with side effects.
Hippocrates has been dubbed the father of medicine, and even he, many thousands of years ago made the comment “look well to the spine for the cause of the disease.” Such wisdom all those years ago has really only been seriously considered today. It’s quite incredible really.
