Does Chiropractic Care Help Back Stiffness (According to Science)?

When you tell somebody you’re seeing a chiropractor, a certain percentage of people will screw their face into a pained expression and then ask you something along the lines of, “Why do you believe in quackery?”. There’s a common misperception (that we’ve addressed on this podcast before) that there’s no science to back up the usefulness of chiropractic care. To fight this wrong thinking, we’re starting a new regular segment on scientific studies related to chiropractic care. This week, we take a look at a scientific study that looks at how a back adjustment affects back stiffness.
