When it comes to good health care, patients should be satisfied with the care they received or are receiving. A patient being satisfied often means they had a good result with their care, but it’s also about being honest and respectful with your patients. Below are some examples of recent research published in highly respected journals that show just how satisfied patient’s are with chiropractic care.
“Recent studies of low back pain treatments
have shown chiropractic patients to be more satisfied with their care than medical patients.”
“Chiropractic physicians handle more back pain visits than do medical doctors and are playing an increasing role in the management of neuromusculoskeletal problems in general. Furthermore, chiropractic patients are more satisfied with their care than are patients of family physicians.”
“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.”
“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.”
