Chiropractic Treatment Methods Found Effective for Treating Back Issues in Parkland

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

Research Proves Chiropractic Care Helps With Chronic Back Pain

A recent article from the University of Utah verifies what our Parkland patients have experienced: your Parkland chiropractor is the best first option for an episode of back issue.

In this paper, 747 patients were treated for low back issue. 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 researchers found is that the individuals who first saw a chiropractor had fewer advanced imaging tests and fewer surgical procedures.

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. Scharf and our team help your body heal with gentle chiropractic adjustments that don't use drugs or risky surgical procedures.
