Masseuse or Chiropractor: Which Is Better?

By    |   Thursday, 29 May 2014 03:19 PM

Question: What's better for a sore back: A massage or chiropractic adjustment? I work in retail, so I'm on my feel all day, in heels. 

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
Back pain will respond well to massage and may go away if you do exercises to tone up your abdominals and back muscles. Chiropractic adjustments may help some who have pain, but are rarely effective in preventing pain long term.
But you already know one other way to ease your back pain without massage or chiropractic treatments: Take off your heels. They are among the most common causes of recurring back pain and injury in women.
