Wellness Chiropractic Care… An Undervalued Resource

Wellness Chiropractic Care… An Undervalued Resource

Chiropractic care scores well in public opinion.

A recent Gallup Poll revealing Americans’ usage and opinion of chiropractic care.

Of the 7,500+ adults surveyed…

  • 67% consider chiropractic either ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ effective for neck and back pain
  • 80% would recommend chiropractic care to a friend or loved one

While it is good that chiropractic care continues to gain popularity as a ‘go to’ method of care for neck and back pain, most people do not understand the value of wellness chiropractic care as part of a wellness and prevention lifestyle.

A study surveyed 311 chiropractic patients, aged 65 years and older, who had received “maintenance care” for five years or longer. Wellness chiropractic patients receiving maintenance care, when compared with US citizens of the same age, spent only 31% of the national average for health care services. There was a 50% reduction in medical provider visits.

Note – 95.8% of 311 surveyed patients believed the wellness chiropractic care they received to be either ‘considerably’ or ‘extremely’ valuable.
