Part of Your Health Team
The days are long gone when chiropractic was viewed with suspicion by the rest of the healthcare establishment.
Chiropractic's position as America's most popular alternative health therapy was helped by the conclusion by the Agency for
Health Care Policy and Research that chiropractic is a safe and effective non-drug treatment for acute lower back pain in
adults. A later study, published in the British Medical Journal, showed that chiropractic patients had a 29% greater reduction
in lower back pain than patients treated with physical therapy in a hospital on an outpatient basis. Today, chiropractors
routinely receive referrals for patients with back pain from medical doctors, hospitals, and HMOs, making chiropractic an
integral part of your health team.
