The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) welcomes new recommendations published by the American College of Physicians on the non-invasive treatment of acute, subacute and chronic low back pain.
Following a comprehensive update of the systematic review, the ACP has made several recommendations. These include the option of choosing manipulation for management of acute low back pain, with recommendation of non-pharmacological therapies (including manipulation) for relief from chronic low back pain. Rehabilitative interventions are also recommended, where chiropractors may play a leading role.
With many Australians burdened by low back pain, chiropractors are well placed to assist with the management and rehabilitation of this disease.
