What Conditions do Chiropractors Treat and Manage...
Recent evidence (The Bronfort Report, 2010) supports the benefits of chiropractic care for:
General aches and pains of joints, muscle spasms and cramps
Joint pains resulting from osteoarthritis (including hip and knee)
Mechanical neck pain
Headaches arising from the neck
Prevention of migraines
Shoulder and elbow pains (including tennis elbow) when associated with other musculo-skeletal conditions of the spine
The National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence
(NICE) provides the NHS with specific guidelines on how to manage specific medical conditions. In 2009 they began recommending manual therapy including spinal manipulation (ie chiropractic care) for the treatment and management of persistent or recurrent non-specific mechanical low back pain. (This is defined as tension, soreness and/or stiffness in the lower back region involving one or more muscle, joint, disc or other connective tissues).
