Chiropractic Rated #1 by Consumer Reports

Articles published at Consumer Reports this month rated Chiropractic as the number 1 provider/treatment for back pain.  This was a satisfaction survey.  That means that the people took into account the stressfulness of the treatment as well as how well it was implemented.  Chiropractors have consistently been rated with a higher patient satisfaction than other health models for many years.  Most of the respondents in this survey had tried many different methods of care.

According to the summary put out by the ACA :

The Consumer Reports Health Rating Center 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).

That’s 59% highly satisfied, that’s just the highest rating, it doesn’t include those who were merely “satisfied.”  This is great news for chiropractic especially because Consumer Reports put it out.  In the past this publication has been oppositional to chiropractors, publishing negative reports from MDs without even interviewing a single chiropractor.

The take home for patients, if your back hurts, go see your chiropractor.

    This survey clearly states what chiropractors understand but many of the public does not. Chiropractic care is a great option for dealing with back problems. However, lets not forget the more productive use of chiropractic care is in a preventaton manner.

    Even though we are not back treatment doctors. It’s interesting to see that by working on removing the cause of nerve dysfunction the body can and does heal itself like it was designed to do… And it can even heal a herniated disc without the …use of surgery. With research like hypertension and other conditions coming out. We will have our mark at the top of the prevention chain!!! And we have accomplished this in 114 years. Can’t wait to see what the next 100 years will bring…
