So what did they find?
The majority of U.S. adults have a favorable view of chiropractic. In fact, nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults either strongly agree (30%) or agree somewhat (33%) that most chiropractors have their patient's best interest in mind.
Likewise, more than half of U.S. adults also agree that most chiropractors are trustworthy. While only 3% strongly disagreed with this statement, a good portion – 39% - were neutral or just hadn’t had any experience with chiropractic care.
The study also revealed that about half of all U.S. adults had visited a chiropractor at some point in their life, with 14% of those surveyed – or roughly 33 million people – in the twelve months leading up to the survey. An additional 12% of respondents – 29 million U.S. adults – had seen a chiropractor within the previous five years.
Those findings are good food for thought and encouragement that chiropractic will become even more popular and well received once we increase public awareness and exposure!
