Consumer Reports: Chiropractic is top rated treatment for back pain.

The Consumer Reports Health Rating center released a new survey of more than 14,000 Americans on April 6, 2009, showing that chiropractic spinal manipulation is the top-rated treatment for people suffering with back pain.

The survey rated doctors of chiropractic as the top practitioner, with survey respondents noting that they were more likely to be “highly satisfied” with the care received from their doctor of chiropractic (59 percent) than their primary care physician (34 percent).

“For the treatment of back pain, few options are better than chiropractic,” says ACA President Glenn Manceaux, DC. “As shown in this latest survey, chiropractic spinal manipulation is an evidence-based and effective treatment for low-back pain and other musculoskeletal injuries. Coupled with the high-levels of patient satisfaction, patients should turn to chiropractic as their first choice.”

To compare which treatments helped most, Consumer Reports asked it subscribers to rate a comprehensive list of potential remedies wrong with their satisfaction with the health-care professionals they visited. Most survey respondents had tried five or six different treatments on average, and many found that their back pain interfered with their daily activities, including sleep and the sex life.

Doctors of chiropractic provide drug-free, non-invasive treatment options for many types of pain and inflammation. For example, chronic back pain, neck pain, join pain and headaches can often be reduced with the appropriate combination of chiropractic manipulation, rehabilitative exercise and lifestyle counseling – all of which are offered by doctors of chiropractic in a patient’s personalized treatment plan. A significant amount of evidence has shown that the use of chiropractic are for certain conditions can be more effective than traditional medical care, with many patients feeling improvement shortly after their first chiropractic visit.
