Understanding Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a health care specialty utilizing conservative noninvasive care to correct and prevent injuries and disease without the use of drugs or surgery. 

Doctors of Chiropractic have had intensive training and education quite similar to medical education, although chiropractic education emphasizes subjects of the neuromusculoskeletal system and physiology. 

Chiropractic health care encourages patients to partner with their doctors to monitor progress and establish a treatment plan best suited to their specific condition, allowing the patient to continue care as long as they desire.

The doctors of Rosewood Chiropractic Clinic prefer to treat patients in all aspects of their lives including nutrition, exercise and wellness promotion in addition to spinal adjustments and manipulation. Our clinic thrives to empower patients with the knowledge to make correct health choices.

Discussion and open communication about your experiences at Rosewood Chiropractic Clinic is always encouraged.

Scientific Evidence for Chiropractic Care
“Many treatments are available for low back pain. Often exercises and physical therapy can help. Some people benefit from chiropractic therapy or acupuncture.”
Goodman et al. (2013), Journal of the American Medical Association 

“Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.”
McCrory, Penzlen, Hasselblad, Gray (2001), Duke Evidence Report

“Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients.”      
Hertzman-Miller et al (2002), American Journal of Public Health

“[Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy] in conjunction with [standard medical care] offers a significant advantage for decreasing pain and improving physical functioning when compared with only standard care, for men and women between 18 and 35 years of age with acute low back pain.” Goertz et al. (2013), Spine

“A higher proportion of chiropractic patients reported that their low-back pain was better or much better, whereas nearly one-third of medical patients reported their low-back pain was worse or much worse.”
Nyiendo et al (2000), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
" 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor."  Keeney et al (2012), Spine

“Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. CAM patient surveys show that chiropractors are used more often than any other alternative provider group and patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high.”
Meeker, Haldeman (2002), Annals of Internal Medicine
