Patient Satisfaction Surveys going back to the late 1980s show that patients with neck or low back pain, headaches, and a variety of other physical complaints rate their satisfaction with chiropractic care much higher than they do conventional care provided by physical therapists or medical doctors.
Now let’s discuss the amazing results chiropractic can provide for pain relief. A 2005 study, from the prestigious medical journal Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, titled Chronic Pain in Persons With Neuromuscular Disease interviewed patients on the pain relief they derived from a variety of procedures and medicines.
Pain relief was rated on a 1 to 10 scale (where 1 = none, and 10 = the highest relief). The highest rated score was for chiropractic manipulation (7.33), rating higher than Nerve Blocks (6.75) and Opioid Analgesics (6.37). There you have it…chiropractic is better than drugs, not to mention the fact that drugs wear off, while chiropractic correction has been shown to sustain for prolonged periods.
