MINNESOTA WORKERS’ COMP LAWYERS: CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT AND SPINAL MANIPULATION
Chiropractic Treatment Options Are Expanding, Spinal Manipulation Remains Primary Therapy
Chiropractic is a system of therapy focused on the structure of the body, particularly the spine. Chiropractors manipulate the body’s alignment to relieve pain and improve function and to help the body heal itself.
In September 2021, the chiropractic profession celebrated its 126th anniversary. We continue that celebration this October during National Chiropractic Health Month. According to the American Chiropractic Association, this commemorative month raises public awareness of the importance of musculoskeletal health, the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness.
Chiropractic care has many benefits that regular medical treatment may not have. In fact, The World Health Organization has declared chiropractic care to be “safe and effective for the prevention and management of a number of health problems.” See World Health Organization, WHO Guidelines on Basic Training and Safety in Chiropractic, Geneva 2005. Chiropractors are recognized for providing safe, non-drug, noninvasive therapies for back pain, neck complaints and even headaches.
While the mainstay of chiropractic is spinal manipulation, chiropractic care may also include other treatments, including manual or manipulative therapies, postural and exercise education, and ergonomic training (how to walk, sit, and stand to limit back strain). Chiropractors today often work in conjunction with primary care doctors, pain experts, and surgeons to treat patients with pain.
The most positive research on chiropractic therapy has focused on spinal manipulation for low back pain. As one of the alternatives to pain-relieving drugs, the American College of Physicians low back pain guideline recommends spinal manipulation along with heat, massage, and acupuncture.
Chiropractic treatment may also help people with other musculoskeletal-related pains.
“Spinal manipulation” is a generic term used for any kind of therapeutic movement of the spine. Most often it involves the application of quick but strong pressure on a joint between two vertebrae of the spine.
In addition to spinal manipulation, a chiropractor may advise you about changing your biomechanics and posture and suggest other treatments and techniques. The ultimate goal of chiropractic is to help relieve pain and help patients better manage their condition at home.

CONTINGENT FEE ARRANGEMENTS AVAILABLE
A contingent fee agreement means you don’t have to pay for the lawyer’s service “up front.” Your lawyer agrees to work on your case without any payment until the lawyer produces a settlement. The lawyer will only get paid when the client receives compensation from a settlement or court judgment – and then as a percentage of the recovery.
Contingent fee agreements for lawyers are very similar to those of real estate agents who do their work without pay until the house gets sold; only then do the agents collect their fees as a percentage of the property’s total sales price.
This type of agreement has two big advantages. First, it allows the client to get the services of a personal injury attorney when they otherwise wouldn’t be financially able to pay for one. Second, a contingent fee agreement has a built-in incentive for the lawyer to do a good job because the larger the settlement the more the attorney is paid.
