There is a debate as to whether chiropractor treatments are more effective than painkiller pills. Many people are affected by lower back pain. Chiropractors move the spine in certain ways to relieve back pain. This treatment costs much more than painkillers, but pills are more detrimental to health. While nothing is perfectly effective in relieving back pain, the American College of Physicians (ACP) suggest that people try a few things such as heat wraps, acupuncture, and massages instead of taking drugs at first.
