The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care
ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE
Many patients who receive chiropractic care report an enhanced quality of life as one of the most significant benefits. According to a 2001 study published in the “Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics,” chiropractic care is effective in managing cancer patients pain and improving their quality of life. A holistic chiropractor utilizing multiple treatment modalities spends a significant amount of time with her patients, counsels patients on their diet and lifestyle, emphasizes home care and provides appropriate referrals to other local providers–both alternative and biomedical–based on the individuals presentation.
Patients satisfaction with chiropractic care and their enhanced quality of life often is tied to the amount of time the chiropractor spends with them and the individualized care they receive. This is also true of patients receiving care from other health care professionals, such as naturopathic physicians, who search for and treat the root causes of illness.
