6. What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?

If we can be so bold, everything gets better with chiropractic care.

In a recent study, people who under chiropractic care for back pain reported the following unanticipated, unexpected benefits from care:

  • Increased options and hope
  • Increased ability to relax
  • Positive changes in emotional states
  • Increased body awareness
  • Changes in thinking that increased the ability to cope with back pain
  • Increased sense of wellbeing
  • Improvements in physical conditions unrelated to back pain
  • Increased energy
  • Increased patient activation
  • Dramatic improvements in health and well-being
