Health Tip: Chiropractors and Back Pain

Last Updated: July 25, 2019.

(HealthDay News) -- For those with back pain, even daily activities can be uncomfortable. A common treatment option is chiropractic care, says Duke University.

A chiropractor typically will use his or her hands to improve joint mobility, relieve muscle tightness and ease nerve irritation in certain areas.

Though chiropractic care can be uncomfortable at first, serious side effects are rare. Typically, patients have slight soreness afterward that eases over time.
