Patient Satisfaction With Chiropractic

Patient Satisfaction With Chiropractic

The Chiro.Org Blog


Patient Satisfaction Surveys going back to the late 1980s show that patients with neck or low back pain, headaches, and a variety of other physical complaints rate their satisfaction with chiropractic care much higher than they do conventional care provided by physical therapists or medical doctors.

Now let’s discuss the amazing results chiropractic can provide for pain relief. A 2005 study, from the prestigious medical journal Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, titled Chronic Pain in Persons With Neuromuscular Disease interviewed patients on the pain relief they derived from a variety of procedures and medicines.

Pain relief was rated on a 1 to 10 scale (where 1 = none, and 10 = the highest relief). The highest rated score was for chiropractic manipulation (7.33), rating higher than Nerve Blocks (6.75) and Opioid Analgesics (6.37).

There you have it…chiropractic IS ACTUALLY BETTER than opioid drugs! Not to mention, drugs wear off rapidly, while chiropractic correction has been shown to sustain for prolonged periods.

    Chiropractic is more of a causative approach, hence a big reason why it works so well for pain relief and any joint complex dysfunction. Also, the fact that chiropractors typically spend much more time with patients than MD’s contributes psychologically to the patients better health and healing.
