Is Chiropractic Effective? PDF Print E-mail

Yes. Chiropractic care is safe and effective. Scientific evidence proving that chiropractic care works is overwhelming. Over the past 30 years, many controlled and independent research studies have shown again and again that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other conditions relating to the spine.

Based on these scientific studies, the consensus is that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems.

The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on the severity of the problem, how long it has existed, age, and other related conditions.   Your Doctor of Chiropractic should be able to give you an estimate of the extent of relief you should receive from the recommended treatment and how long you can expect it to last.

Your response to treatment is monitored by your chiropractor, who looks for an improvement to your specific condition, as well as for changes in your overall health.

Two of the basic components of chiropractic care are Wellness and Prevention. Utilization of exercises, along with nutrition and lifestyle modifications may also be suggested to improve your overall well-being and promote active, patient-centered care.

Chiropractic adjustments or manipulations are extremely safe. The risk factor is estimated to be in excess of one million to one for a serious complication, making it arguably one of the safest medical procedures available today.

An adjustment is the main method of treatment used by your chiropractor. It is a specialized, controlled and safe pressure applied to your spine to restore the proper motion and position of your vertebrae. It is a precise procedure that your highly skilled chiropractor has learned and perfected over years of training at a Chiropractic University and in clinical practice.

Every health procedure, from taking aspirin to giving blood, involves a level of risk. Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest of all health care interventions because they are non-surgical, drug-free and present an extremely low risk, and may improve function within minutes!

One of the main reasons people choose chiropractic is that they often get quick results. Individual cases vary and chronic conditions obviously need more treatment.

Workers' Compensation Board studies show that people with low back pain return to work much faster with chiropractic care.
