Physicians’ Initial Management of Acute Low Back Pain Versus Evidence-Based Guidelines
This is one of those articles that, as a chiropractor, really gets to me. We are frequently called quacks and non-evidence based. Unfortunately, it appears that no one has the ability to throw any stones.
However, given that many studies have now shown that chiropractic care is a more cost effective approach, we can begin to see why. I know I have patients come into my office with a simple case of LBP that’s pretty clear cut, and yet they have X-rays and MRI in tow when they come in. Talk about expensive care!!!
