Patients report high levels of satisfaction

Biomed Central recently published a comprehensive study showing that patients report high levels of satisfaction with acupuncture and chiropractic care. A Consumer Reports survey found that while more than half of the respondents reported being highly satisfied with care from acupuncturists (53%) and chiropractors (59%) for back pain, only 44% reported similar satisfaction with care from specialist physicians and 34% with care from primary care physicians. Despite some positive findings among observational studies and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) regarding the impact of acupuncture and chiropractic care on chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMP), highly controlled trials have suggested that expectation and non-specific effects may be substantial contributors to observed treatment effects. These findings highlight the importance of examining patient expectations and treatment decision-making factors when evaluating such outcomes. Acupuncture and chiropractic care for CMP treatment continues to become increasingly popular.

There are no known side effects to acupuncture. As energy is redirected within the body, chemicals and hormones are stimulated allowing healing to occur. Occasionally the original problems worsen for a few days, or you may experience changes in appetite, sleep, or an emotional state may be triggered. There is no need to be concerned, as they are simply indications that the acupuncture is beginning to work. It is quite normal after the first one or two treatments to have a sensation of deep relaxation, and at times, even mild disorientation. These should pass within a short time, and require nothing more than some rest to overcome.
