A study published in the 1995 British Medical Journal that found that for long-term low back pain, “Improvement in all patients at three years was about 29% more in those treated by chiropractors than in those treated by the hospitals.” The study continued, “The beneficial effect of chiropractic on pain was particularly clear.”
A study published in the 1991 Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation on the effect of chiropractic on athletic performance, which studied 11 standardized tests for athletic ability, found that the chiropractic treatment group after 6 weeks made a 10.57% improvement verses 4.5% for the control group. After 12 weeks 16.7% improvement was made.
