Is Chiropractic Safe and Effective?
Chiropractic is widely recognized as a safe and effective method of alternative treatment for conditions of the spine, joints, muscles and nerves. Millions of people look to chiropractic for relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries.
Chiropractic care continues to grow in popularity. Consumers are now more aware of the potential risks associated with drugs, needles and knives and want safe and effective alternatives. Researchers are increasingly interested in investigating chiropractic adjustments to determine its safety and value. There are now a vast number of well-conducted studies that speak to chiropractic’s benefits. To check out a few of these studies, go to our Chiropractic Research Page.
Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. CAM patient surveys show that chiropractors are used more often than any other alternative provider group and patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high. There is steadily increasing patient use of chiropractic in the United States, which has tripled in the past two decades.
