Here are some recently reported research data for you:
If referred early older patients had better function following physical therapy/chiropractic
This study summarized reports that one gets as much relief from PT as you did from Surgery for Lumbar spine stenosis.
This study states using a therapy ball for exercise enhances muscle activity in chronic lower back pain patients.
Seems people with more fat in the paraspinal muscles suffer more pain.
Manual therapies effective short and long term for tension headaches.
Doing exercise rehab can decrease a patients needs for Opioids.
Degeneration of core cervical muscles follows shortly after injury in Whiplash injuries.
How about this one; evidence is lacking for the long term use of opioids for chronic back pain, so why do they prescribe it so much if they are supposedly the "scientific" ones?
