Does chiropractic treatment work?

Chiropractic therapy under the umbrella term of manual therapy is thought to offer fast relief for patients suffering from recently incurred lower back pain. It may also be of some benefit to those suffering from chronic back conditions. However, concrete evidence of success has often been hard to prove, as many clinical trials test only chiropractic manipulation rather than the treatment as a whole. Ultimately while some may argue that chiropractic treatment offers little more than the illusion of care, the success rates amongst athletes and other patients would contradict this view. Despite this, research continues.
