“Chiropractic Safer and More Effective” – Says Medical Researchers

April 2011 – Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine

Dr. Trace Palmer – Chiropractor in Richmond Hill, Ga, found this research article outlining the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic care.

New study by Medical Researchers shows Chiropractors are a safer form of maintenance care for your spine.

Maintenance care for spines has been the “backbone” mantra of the Chiropractic profession for decades.

To quote the Medical Researchers “After controlling for severity and demographics, no health maintenance care is generally as good as chiropractor care.” (Spinal Care)

A total of 894 cases followed 1-year using workers’ compensation claims data. Provider types were defined for the initial episode of disability and subsequent episode of health maintenance care.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Results showed that the Disability Reoccurrence (lower is better) for:

Chiropractic   1.00   (safest and most effective  —- Costs Less)

No Care 1.20 (20% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

MD’s 1.60 (60% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

PT’s 2.00 (100% more relapses vs a chiropractor)

Please make note that the “No Care / maybe it will go away” group had 20% more reoccurrences than the chiropractic maintenance group.

Conclusion:  Its about time that you looked at a safe and effective alternative to drugs and surgery, Chiropractors have been providing their patients with proven care for more than 116 years, since 1895.

Thank you and consider that over 85% of the population in the United States don’t visit a chiropractor regularly. But those 15% that do are extending the number of quality of years that they have by prevention through natural chiropractic care. Don’t put off your decision to seek out a chiropractor till it hurts, most of the time degeneration has already set in.

Yours in Health,

Dr. Trace Palmer
