Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients. Results from observational studies suggested that back pain patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than with medical care. Additionally, studies conclude that patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than they were with physical therapy after six weeks.”

-Hertzman-Miller et al (2002), American Journal of Public Health

Every year, lower back pain is the reason over a third of chiropractic patients schedule their appointments. In fact, lower back pain, or LBP, is the most common complaint of adults worldwide! The causes of LBP are many: lifestyle factors (such as smoking, inactivity, or lack of sleep), injury (at work, from sports, or from auto accidents or falls), or even mental stress.

Studies have shown that sufferers of LBP have been more satisfied with chiropractic care than they have been from medical care or even physical therapy. Why might that be?

One of the suggested reasons is that a chiropractor isn't exclusively focused on your lower back. A good chiropractor is concerned with restoring your total health and well-being, and that means consideration given to the total you. Chiropractic treatments aren't only about techniques and technology, but include explanation, education, and self-care advice. Treatments are highly personalized to every patient, from hands-on manipulation to teaching corrective exercises to creating nutritional programs. Your chiropractor understands that long term relief isn't merely about aligning your spine – it's about your full body wellness. That level of chiropractic care is why more patients prefer it!
