Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Shown to Be Effective for Treating Back Discomfort in Jonesboro

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

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps With Chronic Back Discomfort

A recent study from the University of Utah verifies what our Jonesboro patients have reported: your Jonesboro chiropractor is the best first choice for an episode of back issue.

In this paper, 747 participants were treated for low back problem. 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 authors discovered is that the men and women who first saw a chiropractor had less advanced imaging tests and fewer surgeries.

Other studies have found the same results. A 2012 study found 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. Alpert and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.
