From a back injury to a degenerative spinal disease, there are many ways to correct spinal pain, but many patients find that the first and best option is to make a back surgery.
There are a number of techniques that can be used, but they have the downside of increasing the risk of surgery and complications.
Nurologist Dr. Martin S. Ruppert is an associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine and an adjunct professor at Boston University School of Public Health.
He was not involved in the new research.
“The biggest concern in the literature about spinal manipulation is that it might lead to a very serious, or even death, complication,” RuppERT told The Huffington Post.
“This study provides new evidence to back up that hypothesis.”
RuppERT and his colleagues found that spinal manipulation can improve the quality of life of patients who have suffered from a degeneration of the spine.
The study involved 9 patients who had undergone neck surgery and were suffering from spinal degeneration.
The patients were then divided into two groups, one group had spinal manipulation for six months, while the other group received spinal manipulation only for three months.
The control group received no treatment.
“When we first started doing this study, it was clear that the patients who got spinal manipulation had a significantly better quality of their life,” RoppERT said.
“It’s clear that spinal intervention can improve both their quality of daily life and their quality-of-life overall.
It seems that we’re able to make significant changes in their lives.”
“These findings indicate that a combination of spinal manipulation and physiotherapy may be a reasonable option for improving spinal function in patients who experience spinal pain,” RohnERT added.
The study was published in the journal Neurosurgical Science.
