The Science of Chiropractic
Many studies over the years have shown Chiropractic to be safe, highly beneficial with high patient satisfaction and cost effective. A study in the Journal of Human Hypertension showed that patients getting an adjustment to the cervical/neck resulted in “significantly’ lower blood pressure. (1) Other studies: People that saw a Chiropractor first for their back pain had 42% less surgery than those that went to Medical doctors first (2). People that saw a Chiropractor for neck pain missed less work and success was twice as high as for patients seeing a medical doctor.
Low back pain treated with a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) saves 40% on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a Medical doctor (MD), according to a study of 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) beneficiaries in Tennessee over a two-year span (3).
Got a headache? “The results of another study showed that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches.” (4) There are many other studies supporting the benefits of Chiropractic care.
