It should come as no surprise to you that chiropractic care is viewed as being one of the best treatments for back and neck pain.  However, as we will see in the study below, chiropractic care is still under utilized in our country.  Chiropractors have a very favorable rating with patient satisfaction and treatment outcome, but there are still a lot of people out there who do not understand what we do and how we can help.

Here are some of the highlights:

  1.  1/3 of people surveyed agree that chiropractors have the patient’s best interest in mind when it comes to treatment.
  2. 6 out of 10 adults in the U.S. agree that chiropractic care is effective at treating back and neck pain.
  3. Only about 50% of the population has seen a chiropractor in the past for treatment.
  4. Chiropractic care is preferred over massage therapy and physical therapy.

The bottom line, as the article says, is that over 33 million people have seen a chiropractor in the last 12 months.  What are you waiting for?  You do not have to live in discomfort and you do not have to take medications to cope with your pain.
