It is well known that 80 percent of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. Twenty percent of those adults develop low back pain that becomes chronic ( lasting longer than 12 weeks). To help prevent and reduce cases of chronic back pain, guidelines from the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society recommend the following treatments for acute (short term) low back pain; offering information and reassurance; recommending over the counter medication; and providing manipulation of the affected part of the back, which can be done by chiropractic or physical therapists. The medical and chiropractic communities often work hand in hand, making referrals to one another on the basis of what treatments best suit their patients.
