In the April 2013 issue of Spine, a new study showed that a decrease in acute lower back pain in military patients when they received a combination of chiropractic and medical treatment, as opposed to just received medical attention.The study showed a significant decrease in their back pain as well as physical functioning.

The study involved 91 active duty military personnel ages 18-35. 73% of participants in the medical care plus chiropractic treatment group rated their global improvement as pain completely gone, much better or moderately better. Only 17% in the standard medical care group said their pain was completely gone.
