Does Chiropractic Work?
According to the 2015 Gallup-Palmer Inaugural Report: Americans’ Perceptions of Chiropractic, approximately 34 million adults are treated by chiropractors in the US each year. If you are considering seeing a chiropractor but you are not sure chiropractic treatment is effective, consider this:
In a study done in 2015, 94% of patients that had chiropractic adjustments saw pain reduction of 30% or more. Of those who went to a medical doctor, only 69% of patients had pain relief of 30% or more.1
In another study, 42.7% of workers who had a back injury, who saw a surgeon first, ended up having surgery for their back injuries. Of those who saw a chiropractor first, only 1.5% had surgery.2
And last, in 2017, the American College of Physicians released an update to its low back pain treatment guideline that recommends first using non-drug treatments, such as spinal manipulation (a centerpiece of chiropractic care), for acute and chronic low back pain.
