Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Inaugural Report: Americans’ Perceptions of Chiropractic completed a national survey with some positive findings and areas that need more work to get proper information out to the public. Below are the key highlights.
- Two-thirds (61 percent) of adult Americans believe chiropractors are effective at treating neck and back pain.
- The majority (57 percent) of adults are likely to see a chiropractor for neck or back pain.
- More than 1/2 of all U.S. adults have visited a chiropractor, and more than 1/4 of them would choose chiropractic care first for back or neck pain.
- Nearly 1/2 of all U.S. adults don’t know if their insurance covers chiropractic care.
