Alter­na­tive Care Pop­u­lar Among Kids

The results of a ran­dom nation­wide tele­phone sur­vey of 1,501 moth­ers, fathers and other pri­mary care­givers of chil­dren and ado­les­cents showed that nearly one quar­ter (22%) of the par­ents used some type of alter­na­tive med­i­cine for their child, and almost one in 10 allowed their child to visit a com­ple­men­tary and alter­na­tive med­i­cine provider, defined in the study as a chi­ro­prac­tor, osteo­pathic physi­cian or home­opath. The study also showed that more than one-​third do not tell their med­ical doc­tor about it.

The story reported by the Octo­ber 24, 2002 Web MD and by Reuters Health on Octo­ber 28, 2002, more than 80% of the par­ents were some­what or very sat­is­fied with their child’s most recent use of com­ple­men­tary and alter­na­tive med­i­cines and 86% of par­ents con­sid­ered the care to be some­what or very help­ful. Finally, 90% said they would be will­ing to use com­ple­men­tary and alter­na­tive med­i­cines for their chil­dren in the future.

Dr. Michael B. Aldous of the Uni­ver­sity of Ari­zona in Tuc­son and col­leagues con­ducted the sur­vey and ana­lyzed the results.
