Chiropractic gets results and their patients are happy! This is especially important when one considers that four out of five people will suffer from back pain at some point in their life.
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
Over 40% of all chiropractors are self-employed and own their own clinic. While many chiropractors focus on care for the entire family, Doctors of Chiropractic can also focus their practice on specialty care. Areas of focus can include sports, neurology, pediatrics, orthopedics, nutrition or radiology.
The future of chiropractic is bright! Employment of chiropractors is projected to grow 15% from 2012-2022, faster than average for all occupations. – Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor.
