Multidisciplinary management of low back pain

Monday, June 18, 2018

Our latest infographic highlights a recent paper from Dr. Christine Goertz et al. (2018) Find the full paper here : Effect of Usual Medical Care Plus Chiropractic Care vs Usual Medical Care Alone on Pain and Disability Among US Service Members With Low Back Pain: A Comparative Effectiveness Clinical Trial. Click here to view or download the infographic. ‘Chiropractic care, when added to usual medical care, resulted in moderate short-term treatment benefits in both low back pain intensity and disability, demonstrated a low risk of harms, and led to high patient satisfaction and perceived improvement in active-duty military personnel. This trial provides additional support for the inclusion of chiropractic care as a component of multidisciplinary health care for low back pain, as currently recommended in existing guidelines.’ Read More

An incredibly busy and productive clincian, researcher, journal editor, PhD student, husband and dad, he is never short of things to do. Dr. Stuber will be continuing to work with CCGI in his role as best practice collaborator and podcast host, and will be involved in several CCGI research projects including the ongoing guideline on lumbar spinal stenosis, the national survey on evidence-informed practice and the creation of patient versions of the guidelines. We will miss your infectious good humour and professionalism enormously on the team but look forward to continuing to work with you on different projects. Thank you for all you have done and are continuing to do to move the work of CCGI forwards in Canada and internationally. Read More
