Guideline-concordant utilization of magnetic resonance imaging in adults receiving chiropractic manipulative therapy vs other care for radicular low back pain: a retrospective cohort study

"Background Lumbar magnetic resonance imaging is often done early in the course of care, but it can be discordant with recommendations for non-serious low back pains. " Adults undergoing chiropractic manipulative therapy for a condition radicular low back pain will have reduced the chances of early LMRI over a 6-week course compared to those receiving other care, according to our basic hypothesis. Results After comparing, there were 12,353 patients per cohort, with a marginal but statistically significant decrease in the odds of early LMRI in the CSMT relative to other care groups over a 6-weeksu2019 follow-up. Over the 6-months and 1-yearsu2019 follow-up, there was a small but statistically significant rise in the likelihood of LMRI in patients in the CSMT relative to the other care cohort. Patients receiving CSMT for newly diagnosed rLBP are less likely to have early LMRI than those receiving general care," these findings reveal.
