Study provides the strongest evidence to-date that
chiropractic care is safe, effective and can be integrated
A new published study led by Palmer Center for Chiropractic
Research investigators found that patients suffering from low-back pain who
received chiropractic care in addition to usual medical care had better
short-term improvements in low-back pain intensity and pain-related disability when compared to those who received usual medical care alone. Results of this
groundbreaking research were released in the inaugural edition of the Journal
of the American Medical Association’s online JAMA Network Open.
The study – the largest randomized clinical
trial in chiropractic research in the U.S. to-date – took place from September
2012 to February 2016 and involved 750 active-duty U.S. military personnel at
three sites across the country. Leading edge research – just one more reason
Palmer College is the trusted leader in chiropractic education.
