Does chiropractic work? Yes, chiropractic is effective. Countless studies document the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of chiropractic. Even more significant is that 25% of British Columbians regularly visit their family chiropractor to recover from workplace accidents, car crashes, sports injuries or aches and pains associated with everyday living. It is common for patients to report that their range of motion is improved, their pain lessened and their quality of life improved as a result of chiropractic treatment. Sometimes changes are immediate but most patients notice a difference in 3-5 treatments and full recovery after 6-8 visits on average* depending on the nature of your injury. Seven studies outline the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of chiropractic care.
*Although the Provincial average is 6-8 visits the range is large with some patients responding much quicker and a few taking much longer.
