Most medical physician’s attitudes toward chiropractic care have changed dramatically in recent years – in part thanks to a comprehensive clinical practice guideline from the American College of Physicians that strongly endorsed spinal manipulation over medication for low back pain. However, a new study shows that a few skeptical MD’s do not consistently follow these guidelines because they do not understand chiropractic care. Is your doc a holdout? Help change their attitude by telling them about your positive chiropractic experience.
