Consumers need alternatives to opioids for neck and back pain. Many are seeking pain relief with PT, Chiropractic & Acupuncture.
Aug. 26, 2016, DAVENPORT—Low-back pain is the single leading cause of physical disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013. “Low-back pain and neck pain place a tremendous burden on our society,” said Christine Goertz, D.C., Ph.D., vice chancellor for research and health policy at Palmer College of Chiropractic. “The opioid-overuse epidemic in the United States demonstrates that Americans need safe, effective, conservative health-care alternatives to prescription pain-killers.”
According to a new Gallup report commissioned by Palmer College of Chiropractic, U.S. adults are more likely to describe chiropractic care as “very safe” and “very effective” than to say this about pain medications or back surgery.
The “Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Annual Report: Americans’ Perceptions of Chiropractic” is the second-annual Gallup-Palmer survey of American attitudes about chiropractic care.
This nationally representative annual survey measured perceptions of, and experiences with, chiropractic among U.S. adults. The survey will be repeated for at least one more year as part of Palmer College’s on-going effort to study and advance the profession’s identity and understanding of public perceptions regarding chiropractic care.
