Chiropractic Report Mercer and Harvard University

A new expert study from leading US health economists from Mercer Health and Benefits and Harvard University analyses chiropractic management of back and neck pain and reports:

–         “Almost half of US patients with persistent back pain” seek chiropractic care.
–         “Low-back and neck pain are extremely common conditions that consume large amounts of healthcare resources”.
–         Effectiveness: chiropractic care is more effective than other modalities for treating low-back and neck pain”.
–         Cost-effectiveness: when considering effectiveness and cost together, chiropractic physician care for low-back and neck pain is highly cost-effective, and represents a good value in comparison to medical physician care and to widely accepted cost-effectiveness thresholds”.
