I was doing a little web surfing this afternoon and came across a Consumer Reports article from March of 2013.
It stated that “The Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center recently surveyed more than 14,000 subscribers who experienced lower-back pain in the past but never had back surgery.”
It went on to name Chiropractic as the treatment that patients were most satisfied with for back pain and advice related to their back pain.
It’s not that I was surprised by this article as there are many others supporting similar claims about the efficacy of chiropractic care.
What is interesting is that this article is discussing satisfaction with care which means that the people took into account not only the impact the treatment had on their pain but also how it was implemented.
There’s no refuting that chiropractic is a top choice for reducing (and preventing) back pain.
However, it’s also great to see patients happy with the bedside manner and advice given by their chiropractor and especially when considering that most of the respondents in this survey had tried many different methods of care.
If you know someone that is hesitant to give chiropractic care a try for their nagging back or neck pain, forward them this article and you just might help a friend or loved one find the relief they have been desperately seeking.
