14,000 Americans Choose Chiropractic for Relief of an Aching Back

Dr. J. Adam Wagner, DC

In addition to spinal manipulation, spinal decompression therapy can be extremely effective in the treatment of chronic and acute back pain. Remember that the treating doctor is the key to success! No matter which therapy or combination of therapies is appropriate for you, it is your doctor’s ability to diagnose and qualify a patient for treatment, that gives you the best possible chance for a positive outcome. Chiropractic therapies won’t help everyone, but many patients do benefit, and it is NON-INVASIVE. Get the facts from Dr. Wagner and find out if your back pain can be alleviated by chiropractic care like so many other Americans.

Chiropractic Manipulation Best Option For Low Back Pain, According to Patient Survey

In light of a new survey showing that chiropractic spinal manipulation is the top-rated treatment for people suffering with back pain, patients should consider a consultation with a doctor of chiropractic, says the American Chiropractic Association.

A leading consumer product rating and survey publisher released the survey results of more than 14,000 Americans on April 6.

The survey rated doctors of chiropractic as the top practitioner, with survey respondents noting that they were more likely to be “highly satisfied” with the care received from their doctor of chiropractic (59 percent) than their primary care physician (34 percent).

“For the treatment of back pain, few options are better than chiropractic,” says ACA President Glenn Manceaux, DC. “As shown in this latest survey, chiropractic spinal manipulation is an evidence-based and effective treatment for low-back pain and other musculoskeletal injuries. Coupled with the high levels of patient satisfaction, patients should turn to chiropractic as their first choice.”

To compare which treatments helped most, survey respondents were asked to rate a comprehensive list of potential remedies as well as their satisfaction with the health care professionals they visited. Most survey respondents had tried five or six different treatments on average, and many found that their back pain interfered with their daily activities, including sleep and their sex life.

A significant amount of evidence has shown that the use of chiropractic care for certain conditions can be more effective than traditional medical care, with many patients feeling improvement shortly after their first chiropractic visit.
