Chiropractic services are acknowledged to be as effective for neck pain and back pain relief. A new study reports on the satisfaction of patients who either adhere to the suggested treatment frequency guidelines or do not. Neck pain and back pain patients described as “concordant” (5 or more visits within any 2-month time period or at least 12 visits during the year) or “discordant” (not having 5 or more visits in a 2-month time period or 12 visits in a year) who were also further defined by other demographics were followed. Most chiropractic users with diagnosed neck or back pain were said to be “discordant” with treatment frequency guidelines and their healthcare costs for chiropractic care were only $434 versus $2555 for “concordant” patients.
