    Research Supports Chiropractic  

    Chiropractc Facts - Numerous studies have shown that chiropractic treatment is both safe and effective. The following are excerpts from a few of the more recent studies.


    "Patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians.  A higher proportion of chiropractic patients (56 vs. 13 percent) reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, whereas nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse." -Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.  Nyiedo et al. (2000)



    “In our randomized controlled trial, we compared the effectiveness of manual therapy, physical therapy, and continued care by a general practitioner in patients with nonspecific neck pain. The success rate at seven weeks was twice as high for the manual therapy group (68.3 percent) as for the continued care group (general practitioner). Manual therapy scored better than physical therapy on all outcome measures.” -Annals of Internal Medicine, Hoving et al. (2002)



    In a Randomized controlled trial, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly allocated to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education and drugs) in a 52-week study. The clinical outcomes measures showed that manual therapy resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. -British Medical Journal, Korthals-de Bos et al. (2003)



    "Cervical spine manipulation was asssociated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and heahache." -Duke Evidence Report, McCrory.  Penzien, Hassellblad, Gray (2001) 



    A clinical trial reported that 72% of 123 migraine sufferers experienced improvement after a period of chiropractic care (the average length of time they had experienced  migraines was 18 years).  Around 22% of patients had substantial reduction; which means that the more symptomatic group had around 60 percent of their symptoms reduced during the course of the treatment."  -Medical News.net, May 20, 2005                            




    A study of retrospective claims data analysis of 700,000 people with chiropractic coverage in their plan were compared to another 1 million people who did not have chiropractic coverage.  Comparing the health plans that include chiropractic to the ones that do not, the study found that: (1) Chiropractic care cut the cost of treating back pain by 28%.  (2) Chiropractic care reduced hospitalizations among back pain patients by 41%.  (3) Chiropractic care reduced back surgeries by 32%. (4) Chiropractic care reduced the cost of medical imaging, such as X-rays or MRIs, by 37%. -October 11, 2004 issue of the Archives of  Internal Medicine  


    A study of 2780 patients with mechanical low-back pain referred themselves to 60 doctors of chiropractic and 111 medical doctors.  The study showed that both the acute and chronic patients showed better outcomes in pain and disability reduction and higher satisfaction with their care after undergoing chiropractic care, as compared to medical care.  The authors of the study noted that the satisfaction for the chiropractic care was higher, and the overall total  costs were lower-November 17, 2005 issue of Medical News Today  


    What Do The World’s Greatest Athlete, The World’s Greatest Basketball Player, The World’s Greatest Cyclist, and The World’s Greatest Mixed Martial Artist All Have In Common?

    Everyone pictured above… and too many others to fit on this page (and so should YOU)… utilize Chiropractic care to ease pain, relieve stress and strain, perform better and attempt to live life to the fullest.  And many of their careers depend on optimal performance.  So it really tells you something when they all choose Chiropractic care to be part of their lifestyle.

    Not only that…some even credit Chiropractic as being responsible for their massive success.  For example, Winner of the decathlon and named world’s greatest athlete in 1996, Dan O’Brien had this to say: “If it were not for Chiropractic, I would not have won the gold medal.”   

    And check out world famous author and self-help guru Napoleon Hills personal health success formula from when he was 85:

    “I eat sparingly, work enthusiastically in a labor of love, love generously, and take Chiropractic adjustments once a week whether I need them or not.”

    Hill is also quoted as saying:

    “I take Chiropractic adjustments regularly… not to get well, but to keep from getting sick.”

    Well said Mr. Hill!
