Who are Typical Chiropractic Patients?

inforgraph (1)

It is estimated that doctors of chiropractic treat more than 30 million people annually. This makes doctors of chiropractic the third largest group of doctorate-level, primary-care providers in the nation (behind only medical doctors and dentists). More than 35% of patients receiving chiropractic care were being treated for mid or low back pain and almost 20% were being treated for neck pain. More than 1/2 of those said that these symptoms were chronic.

“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 percent vs. 13 percent) 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.”

– Nyiendo et al (2000), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
