Harvard Study: Low Back Pain Patients Significantly More Satisfied With Chiropractic Than Conventional Medical Care.
At the 17th annual North American Spine Society meeting, three medical doctors defended Chiropractic by citing a Harvard study that found low back pain patients were significantly more satisfied with Chiropractic treatments compared to conventional medical care.
After researching “myths,” Co-author , Dr. Zigler, MD found Chiropractic education is more similar to medical education than it is dissimilar.
Dr. Zigler had integrated Chiropractors into his multi-disciplinary spine center where the Chiropractors screen patients for surgical versus non-surgical care.
Another co-author, Dr. Cole, MD, stated, “overall, manipulation* has the advantage of reducing pain, decreasing medication, rapidly advancing physical therapy and requiring fewer passive modalities.” (*Manipulation is one of the primary treatment techniques used by Doctors of Chiropractic.)
He also recommends spine surgeons refer their patients to Chiropractors.
Our goal is to give you the best and least treatment possible. You, your friends and family can be seen immediately for your back pain relief.
And thank you for your referrals.
Keep ’em coming!
We appreciate it!
