Feeling a little out of alignment? Figures suggest you should try chiropractic care!
Did you know that chiropractic care is gaining in popularity? The Bureau of Labor Statistics are predicting that the employment of chiropractors is to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2017. To compare, civil engineers are expected to grow at eight percent, and accountants – 11 percent. That means more and more people are becoming interested in chiropractic care, and you might be wondering why. So here are some figures that suggest that we might be onto something:
- According to the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, replacing your doctor visits with chiropractor visits for lower back pain could save Medicare $83.5 million per year.
- The Spine Journal reports that 56 percent of patients who visited a doctor saw a 30 percent reduction in lower back pain. However, 94 percent of patients that received manual-thrust manipulation saw a 30 percent reduction in lower back pain.
- Approximately 65 million Americans suffer from chronic lower back pain
- Chiropractors provide 27,200 adjustments to NFL players in a season, and many NFL players including Aaron Rodgers, Vernon Davis, Justin Smith, Jerry Rice, and Patrick Willis all praise chiropractic care.
