Consumer Reports Rates Chiropractic As #1

massage-486700_1920While most know and trust Consumer Reports for unbiased and truthful reports on products and services, those unfamiliar with the nonprofit organization should read the following (this statement can be found on the Consumer Reports website located at http://www.consumerreports.org):

“No brand is more widely recognized and trusted…than Consumer Reports. Since 1936, [it]…has delivered thorough…consumer product recommendations, while maintaining a…reputation for objectivity and accuracy.…In this age of public skepticism…[CR] has maintained its lofty status, a testimony to the organization’s strict standards and steely integrity.”

-Mick O’Leary, O’Leary Online

Now with that out of the way, here’s the good stuff. The Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center recently conducted a survey of more than 14,000 consumers on which therapies are among the top-rated treatments for people suffering with back pain. Keep in mind, this is according to everyday consumers and not small groups of individuals protecting special interests. According to their findings, consumers rated the hands-on therapies (chiropractic/spinal manipulation, massage and physical therapy) as the treatments most effective for back pain. Of those hands-on therapies, 58 percent of consumers rated chiropractic/spinal manipulation as helping a lot – the highest rated effectiveness of all treatment providers. In terms of consumer satisfaction, chiropractic again took the #1 position with 59 percent of consumers being “highly satisfied” with their chiropractic back pain treatment and advice. We could go on telling how great chiropractors are but it appears most of you already know!
