The study found that 94 percent of low back pain sufferers had a 30 percent reduction in pain at week 4 when using manual-thrust manipulation, performed by chiropractic physicians, while only 56 percent of those using medical care (OTCs, NSAIDs & physical activity) had a 30 percent reduction in pain at week 4.
