Cana­dian Researcher Pro­motes Chi­ro­prac­tic Usage

Below is an excerpt printed from an arti­cle enti­tled, “The Eco­nomic Case for the Inte­gra­tion of Chi­ro­prac­tic Ser­vices into the Health Care Sys­tem”, by Pran Manga, Ph.D., Uni­ver­sity of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Here is what Dr. Magna says, “Chi­ro­prac­tic care is a cost-​effective alter­na­tive to other pro­fes­sions man­age­ment of neu­ro­mus­cu­loskele­tal con­di­tions. It is also safer, increas­ingly accepted by the pub­lic as reflected in the grow­ing uti­liza­tion and high patient reten­tion rates and there is much and repeated evi­dence that patients pre­fer chi­ro­prac­tic over other forms of care for the more com­mon mus­cu­loskele­tal con­di­tions. The inte­gra­tion of chi­ro­prac­tic into the health care sys­tem should serve to reduce health care costs, improve acces­si­bil­ity to needed care, and improve health out­comes. There is an exten­sive body of lit­er­a­ture demon­strat­ing that chi­ro­prac­tic care for NMS dis­or­ders is effec­tive though there (are) stud­ies that ques­tion or dis­pute this find­ing. Suf­fice to say that there is not nearly as much nor as con­vinc­ing evi­dence for the effec­tive­ness of med­ical man­age­ment of these con­di­tions. Addi­tion­ally, there is a strong and com­pelling con­sen­sus that chi­ro­prac­tic is safer, and patient sat­is­fac­tion is higher than for other professions.”
