This book states “There has been rapid growth in the number of clinical trials that have studied the effectiveness of manipulation, mobilization and massage over the past 20 years and …. there is little dispute amongst knowledgeable scientists that manipulation is of value in the management of back pain, neck pain and headaches that make up the 90% or more of all patients who seek chiropractic care.”
“Patent satisfaction with chiropractic car is based on many factors, foremost among these the judgement by patients that their therapeutic goals – particularly relief of pain and the restoration of function – have been met or exceeded. In 2010 the Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, submitted a Report to Congress on the Demonstration of Coverage of Chiropractic Services Under Medicare. This report noted, “Sixty percent of the population indicated they received “complete” or “a lot” of relief of symptoms from their chiropractic treatments. Satisfaction with care was high, with 87 percent indicating a perfect score of 10. Similarly high proportions reported that chiropractors listened carefully and spent sufficient time with them.”
