Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Considered Effective for Low Back Discomfort in Holtsville

Most of us suffer from back problems at some point in our lives. Experts estimate that nearly 1 out of 3 adults deal with some kind of regular spinal pain. Dr. Cohen and our talented staff see many back pain cases in our Holtsville office, and we've found that chiropractic care is an effective way to not only help you recover from back pain, it's also an excellent way to protect against future episodes.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Chronic Back Issues

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

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

What the authors found 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 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. Cohen and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.
