The chiropractic newspaper Dynamic Chiropractic highlighted recent studies published in the medical journal The Lancet on the most effective way to treat low back pain. This topic was also recently discussed on Good Morning America by Robin Roberts and Dr. Jennifer Ashton. According to these "very reputable" papers from The Lancet, first things to do for back pain are stay active, applying superficial heat, spinal manipulation (a.k.a. chiropractic adjustment), massage and acupuncture. Only when these treatments are not effective should one move onto NSAIDs and other more aggressive and invasive forms of treatment.
These are all treatments that we specialize in here at Dr. Ryan Tichauer Chiropractic and Wellness Group. Dr. Ryan Tichauer, a Midtown New York Chiropractor with 10 years of experience, leads a team of professionals offering a comprehensive treatment.
