Article: Chiropractic and Health, Wellness & Quality of Life

This study included 2818 respondents. It was designed to assess wellness through patients self rating different health domains and overall quality of life at two “time” points: “presently” and retrospectively, recalling their status before initiating chiropractic care.

  • Results indicated that patients reported significant, positive perceived change in all four domains of health (physical state, mental/emotional state, stress evaluation, life enjoyment), as well overall quality of life.
  • The evidence of improved health in the four domains (physical state, mental/emotional state, stress evaluation, life enjoyment), overall quality of life from a standardized index, and the “wellness coefficient”, suggests that chiropractic care is associated with significant benefits.
  • These benefits are evident from as early as 1-3 months under care, and appear to show continuing clinical improvements in the duration of care intervals studied, with no indication of a maximum clinical benefit.

This article reviewed chiropractic maintenance care for lower back pain. 

  • The study showed that chiropractic patients experiencing lower back pain had fewer days of bothersome pain when receiving chiropractic care at regular intervals regardless of their symptoms at the time compared to patients only receiving chiropractic treatment with a new episode of pain. 
  • The aims of this study were to investigate pain trajectories around treatment, recurrence of new episodes of lower back pain and length of consecutive pain free periods and total number of pain free weeks, for all study participants.
  • The patients in the study receiving maintenance care had fewer days with limiting pain compared to the patients getting the “control intervention.”
  • The conclusion of this study was that the use of maintenance care helped the patients increase the number of pain free weeks.
