Increase in Chi­ro­prac­tic Patients With Work-​Related Injuries

The above head­line comes from a Health​mall​.com report of a release from the July 21st 2000 Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Chi­ro­prac­tic Asso­ci­a­tion. In this arti­cle it is reported that there is more evi­dence of chi­ro­prac­tic effec­tive­ness in return­ing injured work­ers back to work both quicker, and more afford­ably than other forms of care. Accord­ing to the report one such study showed a con­sis­tent 2 to 1 advan­tage of chi­ro­prac­tic care over med­ical care for injured work­ers. As far as expenses for such care, another study showed that costs in cases man­aged by doc­tors of chi­ro­prac­tic increased only 12% between 1986 and 1989, while treat­ment costs in cases man­aged by med­ical doc­tors increased 71% dur­ing the same period.

His­tor­i­cally, the med­ical com­mu­nity has been slow to embrace the chi­ro­prac­tic approach for injured work­ers how­ever, based on new evi­dence the arti­cle reports that, “some doc­tors of chi­ro­prac­tic are expe­ri­enc­ing an increase in the num­ber of patients with work-​related injuries who are being referred to them by med­ical doctors.”
