An article this month in Consumer Reports placed massage therapy and spinal manipulation two of the top three most effective treatments for back pain. Many people are advised that they will need surgery, or lots of costly, painfull physical therapy sessions. According to this article, Chiropractic manipulation along with massage are better options for people suffering with back pain. Among the list of treatments shown, Yoga and Tai Chi took the top spot while physical therapy was rated fourth. The article also stated that approximately 35% of those reporting said that the cost for treatment, either massage or spinal manipulation, was under $100.
So why do people continue to pay hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars for something that doesn't work as well as manipulation of the spine or muscles for back pain?
