A possible treatment for chronic lower-back pain may be the use of custom-made orthodics.
A recent study of adults with lower-back pain (for longer than 3 months) found
that the use of orthodics reduced pain by 34% and improved function by 18%. These
numbers jumped to 40% and 32% respectively when the orthodics were combined with
chiropractic therapies and massage. The American College of Physicians lists spinal
manipulation as one of the treatments for acute and chronic low-back pain.
Caution: Some conditions may preclude these therapies, so check with your doctor
before starting chiropractic treatment.
