Palmer commissions first-ever annual Gallup survey of Americans' perceptions of chiropractic
Palmer College of Chiropractic commissioned Gallup to
conduct the first-ever nationally representative annual
survey of U.S. adults that measures perceptions of, and
experiences with, chiropractic. More than 5,000 U.S.
adults were randomly selected to participate in this
study, which was conducted in spring 2015.
The study, officially named, the "Gallup-Palmer College
of Chiropractic Inaugural Report: Americans' Perceptions
of Chiropractic," shows most adult Americans have positive
views of chiropractors and see chiropractic as an effective
way to treat neck and back pain. About 14 percent of adults
in the U.S. say they saw a chiropractor in the last 12
months—slightly higher than previously measured. This is
the first of three annual surveys.
