Every year, chiropractic becomes more and more ingrained into the mainstream health care system. One reason for this is happy patients who tell friends about the positive experiences they've enjoyed at their chiropractor's office.
In a recent review of data from a 1998 national U.S. telephone survey, a majority of chiropractic patients relayed their satisfaction with the care they recieved. Out of a large group of respondents, researchers randomly selected 400 respondents who had undergone chiropractic treatment and 400 who had not.
The results of the survey showed that an overwhelming percentage of patients, most of whom were treated for back pain, neck pain or headaches, were "very satisfied" (53.5 percent) or "satisfied" (29.5 percent) with chiropractic care. If you are a chiropractic patient, please tell your friends; if not, why not make an appointment with your local chiropractor now?
