Chiropractic is Popular in the US
19.4 million US adults and 1.9 million US children use chiropractic. Interestingly, chiropractic manipulation is considered a “mind/body approach” in this data collection with yoga, meditation and massage therapy. (1,2) Do you use these or a combination of these? Most likely. Good for you! Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages you to take care of you in the healthiest ways possible!
Chiropractic Students Aim to Be Part of Mainstream Healthcare
87% of interviewed chiropractic students agreed that it is important for chiropractors to be educated in evidence-based practice. (That's paramount at Vancouver Spine Care Centre!) A majority are also in favor of keeping chiropractic non-prescribing. And most want to be considered mainstream health care practitioners. (3) Chiropractic physicians like your Vancouver chiropractor especially enjoy the reputation as the back pain specialist in healthcare!
Medical Students Warm to Chiropractic
Researchers interviewed medical students to see what they thought of chiropractic. Most were concerned about safety and efficacy of chiropractic. Then these students sat through a one hour presentation about chiropractic. Their attitudes and knowledge of chiropractic improved immediately! (4) Amazing what an hour can do! We chiropractors invite any opportunity to share our profession’s story! Vancouver Spine Care Centre is ready for all of your questions.
Realistic Expectations of Chronic Low Back Pain Patients
Patients with chronic low back pain come to embrace their role in their condition(s). They become aware and accept that they may experience some pain and that they have some control over it. This empowers back pain patients to continue self-care between, during and after physician care visits. (5) This is the goal of Vancouver chiropractic care: that you understand your condition and how you can manage it.
