Chiropractic: Standard Medical Care and Chiropractic

Compared to those who received standard medical care (SMC) alone, military personnel (ages 18-35) with back pain who received chiropractic care in addition to SMC showed significantly more improvement in both decreased pain and increased physical function. Note: This particular study did not include a group of patients who only received chiropractic manipulative therapy.
