(KTVI) - Medical doctors and chiropractors are often at odds with each other.  The Journal of the American Medical Association now  recommends chiropractic as a first means of treating back pain.

Dr. Alex Vidan wasn't going to let that pass by without a comment.  He stops by FOX2 with his pal Mr. Spine with more information.

The JAMA`s recommendation comes on the heels of a recent study out of the medical journal Spine where sufferers of lower back pain all received standard medical care (SMC) and half of the participants additionally received chiropractic care. The researchers found that in SMC plus chiropractic care patients, 73% reported that their pain was completely gone or much better after treatment compared to just 17% of the SMC group.
