Alter­na­tive Med­i­cine Becom­ing Main­stream

The above was the head­line of a July 1, 2005 story appear­ing in the Daily News Cen­tral from Las Vegas Nevada. A sim­i­lar report also appeared on the June 30, 2005 WebMD web­site. The sto­ries reported that a Con­sumer Reports sur­vey of more than 34,000 of their read­ers were asked to rank the treat­ments that worked best for them.

Accord­ing to those who responded to the sur­vey, hands-​on treat­ments, such as chi­ro­prac­tic, worked bet­ter than con­ven­tional treat­ments for such con­di­tions as back pain and arthri­tis. Chi­ro­prac­tic was ranked ahead of all con­ven­tional treat­ments, includ­ing pre­scrip­tion drugs, by read­ers with back pain. Respon­dents also noted that chi­ro­prac­tic pro­vided relief for neck pain as well.

In addi­tion to chi­ro­prac­tic, peo­ple who responded to the sur­vey also used such non-​medical ser­vices as acupunc­ture, deep tis­sue mes­sage, and herbal reme­dies, but reported that these were less effec­tive than chiropractic.

Many chi­ro­prac­tors how­ever, resist being labeled as alter­na­tive, main­tain­ing that chi­ro­prac­tic has become a main­stream ser­vice. Accord­ing to the cen­tre for Stud­ies in Health Pol­icy, “The Doc­tor of Chi­ro­prac­tic can pro­vide all three lev­els of pri­mary care inter­ven­tions and there­fore is a pri­mary care provider, as are MDs and DOs. The Doc­tor of Chi­ro­prac­tic is a gate­keeper to the health care sys­tem and an inde­pen­dent prac­ti­tioner who pro­vides pri­mary care ser­vices. The DC’s office is a direct access por­tal of entry to the full scope of service.”
