A new study reveals that chiropractic adjustments provide faster pain relief and spinal restoration than treatments from acupuncture or medication.
The study was comprised of 115 people diagnosed with chronic spinal pain. Patients were equally divided into three treatment groups consisting of chiropractic adjustments, needle acupuncture or medication.
Prior to the study, each person assessed his or her pain and discomfort level, using several scales of measurement. These same assessments were taken again at two-, five- and nine-week intervals throughout the study.
According to assessment results, 27.3% of the patients under chiropractic care experienced early pain relief. Only 9.4% of the acupuncture patients and 5% of the medication patients experienced early pain relief. Chiropractic patients also experienced the most overall improvement.
