An Analysis of 393 Self-Reports Reveals Remarkable Improvement in Patients' Symptoms Following Chiropractic Care

In a groundbreaking study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, chiropractors Joseph J Ierano and Phillip S Ebrall present compelling evidence of the life-changing benefits of chiropractic care. The study, which analyzed 393 patients from 60 Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors worldwide, sheds light on the profound improvements experienced by patients in their own words. This research underscores the pivotal role chiropractic care plays in addressing global health concerns and offers a unique perspective from the patients themselves. 

The nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of the body, and structural shifts in the spine can occur that obstruct the nerves and interfere with their function. These structural shifts, referred to as vertebral subluxations, are precisely what chiropractors aim to correct. By removing these structural shifts, chiropractic care improves nerve supply and function, leading to an array of remarkable health benefits. 

Patient Voices Resonate

In this extensive study, a thematic analysis was conducted to extract trends in patient experiences, satisfaction, and values-expression. Patients who received Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical chiropractic care from certified practitioners were selected from private practice clinics to complete pre and post-treatment questionnaires documenting their presenting complaints and treatment experiences.

The results were nothing short of astonishing. Patients seeking acute care reported an astonishing 90% resolution in their pain and discomfort within just a 3½ week window of care. Patients were categorized into two groups: those seeking acute care of up to 6 weeks and those opting for ongoing maintenance care. Regardless of the category, all patients reported significant improvements in their neurological and functional well-being.

Transformative Outcomes

Data analysis was conducted with a focus on themes related to gender, age, and duration of care. Among the most prevalent themes were expressions of patient satisfaction, successful pain reduction, and functional restoration. The "Patient Voice" was vividly expressive, reflecting patients' perceptions of their journey from illness to health.

Notably, the study showed that Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care overwhelmingly benefited patients with neuro-functional issues. The technique consistently demonstrated its unique ability to address the root causes of pain and discomfort.

Beyond the Ordinary

The uniqueness of Atlas Orthogonal care and its profound impact on patient experiences warrant further investigation. These results, however, should not be generalized to chiropractic care in general or any other chiropractic technique. They stand as a testament to the potential of Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care to change lives and offer hope to individuals suffering from chronic disease and acute pain.

Moving Forward

This groundbreaking research illuminates the incredible potential of chiropractic care in improving the lives of patients worldwide. The study's emphasis on patient voices offers a perspective often overlooked in medical research. The results underscore the need for more extensive exploration of Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care's transformative effects on patients' well-being.

Chiropractors Ierano and Ebrall's dedication to advancing the understanding of chiropractic care has the potential to shape the future of healthcare. Their study serves as an invitation to the healthcare community to listen to the "Patient Voice" and explore innovative approaches to addressing global health challenges.
