Benefits of complementary and alternative medicine for back pain

NewsGuard 100/100 Score

Got a pain in the neck or back? Relief could be just an adjustment away. In a recent study, "Perceived Benefit of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) for Back Pain" (Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, May - June 2010, Vol. 23 No.3), the majority of respondents receiving CAM for back pain reported significant benefits from the various treatments. Sixty percent of those surveyed who had at least one CAM therapy in the last 12 months found remarkable relief using the top six CAM modalities, which include chiropractic care, massage, yoga/tai chi/qi Cong, acupuncture, herbal therapies, and relaxation techniques - with chiropractic care the most popular choice.
