Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Louisville, KY - Nov 23, 2015 - Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness is proud to provide some of the finest chiropractic care available in Louisville.
Painkillers have been shown to be ineffective when it comes to treating low-back pain. Furthermore, these painkillers offer only “minimal short-term benefit” for individuals who have hip or knee osteoarthritis.
This is why American Chiropractic Association (ACA) strongly encourages patients and healthcare providers to consider the benefits of a conservative approach to management of back pain. ACA President Anthony Hamm, DC said, “People need complete information about their treatment options. Research supports the use of more conservative treatments as a first-line defense against pain. This sensible approach not only reduces healthcare costs, but may also help some patients avoid riskier treatments altogether.”
Research published in the The Lancet in July 2014 report that acetaminophen “does not ease low-back pain.” The British Medical Journal study also concludes that the widely used painkiller is no longer effective in alleviating and treating pain.
In response, Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness uses different chiropractic services such as advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. The clinic also teaches individuals how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body. Other services include lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and spinal and postural screenings.
Chiropractors are able to provide patient-centered, whole-person approach. “The services provided by chiropractic physicians are not only clinically effective but also cost-effective, so taking a more conservative approach at the onset of low-back pain can also potentially save both patients and the healthcare system money down the line,” said Dr. Hamm. The ACA, based in Arlington, VA., is the largest professional association in the United States representing doctors of chiropractic.
