Chi­ro­prac­tic More Pop­u­lar

If you’re begin­ning to think that more and more peo­ple are going to a chi­ro­prac­tor, you’re right. Each time a new study is done the num­bers of peo­ple going to chi­ro­prac­tors con­tin­ues to rise. This rise is also closely cor­re­lated with the rise in usage of other non-​medical forms of health care.

In 1990, a study by Eisen­berg illus­trated a usage of chi­ro­prac­tic in the United States of 10%. This num­ber grew to 16% by the year 1994 in a study by Austin. In a recent Stan­ford study, the num­bers have con­tin­ued to grow up to 17% of all Amer­i­cans see­ing chi­ro­prac­tors. This is not sur­pris­ing when we see that this same Stan­ford study showed that 81% of those receiv­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care con­sid­ered it to be totally effective.

Oddly enough only 55% of those in the study who received chi­ro­prac­tic care said their care was cov­ered by insur­ance. This meant a very large por­tion of the care was paid for out of pocket by the patients them­selves. These num­bers reflect a con­sumer base that wants chi­ro­prac­tic and is will­ing to pay for it.
