Despite a growing body of evidence, the peanut gallery still repeats the mantra... "There's no evidence to 'prove' Chiropractic works." Of course, when asked what is meant by 'evidence' and 'works', there is no clear response, yet the same tired rhetoric continues. In this episode, we will review these claims, discuss what does and doesn't exist in Chiropractic, and review a newly published study. A Randomized Control Trial (remember, they tell us these ones are the best) study, performed at the Naval Hospital in Pensacola, Florida found that soldiers who had Chiropractic care for 4 months had: Improved strength Improved balance Improved endurance And short term improvements to low back pain. The study involved 110 active military personal, 86% of those had low back pain for greater than three months, and 66% of which had back pain for longer than one year. The soldiers were divided into two groups the active group and the wait list group. The active group received chiropractic care for four months. It's always nice to see documented evidence of 'other' nerve system related phenomenon (strength and balance) improving. Yet, more evidence to support the idea that Corrective Chiropractic is more about keeping your spine and nerve system healthy and all the benefits that brings. What We Cover
