This study was documented in the European Journal of Pain and it demonstrates a clear link between safe effective chiropractic treatments and good long term outcomes.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
Chiropractic doctors have provided answers to whether adjustments are painful on ShareCare .
Dr Gerald M. Silverman, a Chiropractic Medicine Specialist says:
‘While there are there are several other programs and techniques that are designed to increase joint movements, only spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) has gone through rigorous, controlled studies and been proven to favourably affect patient outcomes. Using carefully applied, gentle forces, spinal manipulation strives to increase motion in restricted joints that will stimulate sensory nerves and block the production of pain. SMT has also been associated with the release of the body’s own natural painkillers, endorphins. Studies have shown that SMT is an appropriate, safe and effective therapy for joint and disc pain (Agency for Health Care Policy and Research 1994).
