Baby Boomers Believe Chi­ro­prac­tic Helps Them be Healthy

In the Sept. 19, 2000 /​PRNewswire was a report by the Amer­i­can Chi­ro­prac­tic Asso­ci­a­tion on a sur­vey of “Baby Boomers” con­ducted in the fall of 1999. The sur­vey of baby boomers was con­ducted by Sorelli B, a national research firm. The sur­vey found that more than one third of those sur­veyed said chi­ro­prac­tic care pre­vented the need for pre­scrip­tion drugs and phys­i­cal ther­apy. Addi­tion­ally, many respon­dents believe chi­ro­prac­tic care had helped them avoid back surgery and hos­pi­tal stays.

The sur­vey results strongly showed many par­tic­i­pants desire for chi­ro­prac­tic care when it found that, they are will­ing to pay for the ser­vices out-​of-​pocket, although they would pre­fer to have the care cov­ered by their insur­ance plans. The report also stated that nearly 60 per­cent of those sur­veyed said they would be will­ing to sign a peti­tion ask­ing their insur­ance com­pa­nies to include chi­ro­prac­tic as a core com­po­nent of their health plan.

One of the more telling quotes from the news story was the fol­low­ing, “most of the baby boomers sur­veyed in the recent study said they were influ­enced more often by their doc­tor of chi­ro­prac­tic than by their med­ical doc­tor or osteopath. And doc­tors of chi­ro­prac­tic received higher rat­ings in the area of patient sat­is­fac­tion than did their med­ical coun­ter­parts.” They con­cluded that, “Over­all, 60 per­cent of the reg­u­lar patients sur­veyed believe their doc­tor of chi­ro­prac­tic has improved their qual­ity of life.”
