Chiropractic Care – A Safe and Effective Alternative

In September 2021, the chiropractic profession celebrated its 126th anniversary. We continue that celebration this October during National Chiropractic Health Month. According to the American Chiropractic Association, this commemorative month raises public awareness of the importance of musculoskeletal health, the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness.

Chiropractic care has many benefits that regular medical treatment may not have. In fact, The World Health Organization has declared chiropractic care to be “safe and effective for the prevention and management of a number of health problems.” See World Health Organization, WHO Guidelines on Basic Training and Safety in Chiropractic, Geneva 2005. Chiropractors are recognized for providing safe, non-drug, noninvasive therapies for back pain, neck complaints and even headaches.

Please read the list below to learn more about how chiropractic care could help you or a loved one:

  1. 63% of U.S. adults have had neck or back pain significant enough that they saw a health-care professional for care.
  2. Roughly 25% of U.S. adults visited a chiropractor in the past five years for a non-drug approach to pain.
  3. In 2014, almost 2 million Americans abused, or were depending on, prescription opioids. As many as 25% of people who receive prescription opioids long term for non-cancer related pain in primary care settings struggle with addiction. By contrast, doctors of chiropractic are not authorized to prescribe any type of medicine.
  4. 80% of the American population will experience back pain in their lives. Back pain is one of the leading reasons why people are prescribed opioids.
  5. All 32 American pro football teams use chiropractors to help keep players healthy and in the game. Chiropractors provide care for musculoskeletal conditions such as neck and back pain, hamstring and quadriceps strains, whiplash injuries and more.
  6. Chiropractors can help correct poor posture, which left alone can lead to excessive strain on our postural muscles, in order to reduce the risk of injury. Several factors contribute to poor posture such as stress, obesity, pregnancy, weak postural muscles, abnormally tight muscles, and wearing high-heeled shoes.
  7. 90% of Americans suffer from headaches. Research shows that spinal manipulation, one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic, may be an effective option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.

Currently both the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School recognize chiropractic therapy as a safe and effective method of treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other spine-related conditions.  See Mayo Clinic Patient Information Sheet, Chiropractic Adjustment, and

A contingent fee agreement means you don’t have to pay for the lawyer’s service “up front.” Your lawyer agrees to work on your case without any payment until the lawyer produces a settlement. The lawyer will only get paid when the client receives compensation from a settlement or court judgment – and then as a percentage of the recovery.

Contingent fee agreements for lawyers are very similar to those of real estate agents who do their work without pay until the house gets sold; only then do the agents collect their fees as a percentage of the property’s total sales price.

This type of agreement has two big advantages. First, it allows the client to get the services of a personal injury attorney when they otherwise wouldn’t be financially able to pay for one. Second, a contingent fee agreement has a built-in incentive for the lawyer to do a good job because the larger the settlement the more the attorney is paid.
