An Alternative To Medication And Surgery
Studies show that patients treated by chiropractic receive immediate pain relief, better results and long term satisfaction. "Close to 90% of herniated disc patients reported "good" or "excellent" improvement after approximately 13 chiropractic treatments. Over a year later, 80% still reported "good" or "excellent" improvement."
"82% of patients undergoing spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) for neck pain reported a 50% or greater reduction in pain; results were consistent after 12 weeks of treatment and one year later. Only 69% of patients taking muscle relaxants reported similar results."
"Patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians. Satisfaction scores were higher for chiropractic patients. A higher proportion of chiropractic patients (56% vs 13%) reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, whereas nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse."
"Acute and chronic chiropractic patients experienced better outcomes in pain, functional disability and patient satisfaction; clinically important differences in pain and disability improvement were found for chronic patients."
