What is Chiropractic (3)

Chiropractic in ShenZhen, China

Is Chiropractic effective?

Major studies have shown that chiropractic treatment and management is effective and cost effective in the treatment of

Low Back Pain


"Chiropractic manipulation is safer and more cost effective than medical management of low back pain (LBP). There is good empirical evidence that patients are very satisfied with chiropractic management of LBP." Manga P et al. Study funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health, Canada, 1993 .


"Manipulation of the low back is recommended during the first four weeks of symptoms, with or without medication, in conjunction with low-stress exercise followed by conditioning exercises after two weeks." Clinical Practice Guidelines of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR), Department of Health and Human Services, USA, 1994 .


"Consider manipulative treatment within the first six weeks for patients who need additional help with pain relief or who are failing to return to normal activities. The risk of manipulation is very low in skilled hands." Clinical Guidelines of the Royal College of General Practitioners et al, UK, 1996 .


"Manual therapy, including spinal manipulation, is recommended for patients with acute low back pain and functional limitations of more than 2 to 3 days duration, and for acute exacerbations of recurrent or chronic low back pain and functional limitation." Study by the Danish Institute for Health Technology Assessment, National Board of Health, Denmark, 1999 .

Neck Pain"Cervical spine manipulation and mobilization probably provide at least short-term benefits for some patients with neck pain and headaches."Hurwitz EL et al. 1996.

Headache"Cervical spinal manipulation is effective for the treatment of cervicogenic headache and of tension-type headache." Evidence Report by the Duke University Evidence-based Practice Center, USA, 2000.



"Interventions that promote activity such as mobilization, manipulation, and exercise in combination with medication are effective on a time limited basis in the treatment of whiplash-associated disorders." Scientific Monograph of the Quebec Task Force on Whiplash-Associated Disorders, Canada, 1995.

About the Author
About the Author:

Dr. David Cosman now directs our new team of doctors and therapists in Shekou at Chiropractic First.
Our expertise includes diagnosis and treatment of sports & spinal issues such as:
· foot pain, sprained ankles, leg, knee and hip pain & injuries
· shoulder, and upper limb problems
· headaches, back pain and neck pain
· overuse syndromes

Sports Science:
Since poor technique results in painful physical stress, we teach efficient or optimal movement, including walking and running technique. We apply the basics of technique to golf, tennis and other sports.

Chiro and Physio Combined:
We use various chiropractic adjusting techniques, physio methods including stretching, dynamic stability exercises, physio equipment (stim, ultrasound, microcurrents, laser), and "state of the art" Fascial Manipulation - The Stecco Method.

Treatments are aimed at eliminating pain and increasing function as fast as is safely possible, providing spinal and pelvic stability, smooth coordinated motion, balance and strength. So really, we are not just treating muscles, fascia, nerves, bones and joints, but more importantly, the functional relationship between all of these important body parts.

Work-Place Ergonomics:
Regarding postural stress at the desk, First Chiro now offers modern chair and work-station set-up at the patient’s office or home. This part of the team’s expertise includes inspections, report, corrective set up, postural education, and if required, exercises and advice that go beyond basic fitness.
