Gallup and Palmer College release results of inaugural national report on U.S. perceptions of chiropractic
According to a new Gallup report released Sept. 8, an estimated 33.6 million U.S adults (14%) used chiropractic care within the last 12 months. The report, officially named, the “Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Inaugural Report: Americans’ Perceptions of Chiropractic,” also indicates that more than half of U.S. adults view doctors of chiropractic positively and agree they are effective at treating neck and back pain. However, nearly half of U.S. adults don’t know whether their insurance covers chiropractic care.
The RSNA awards committee presented 28 Magna Cum Laude awards, 67 Cum Laude awards, and 302 Certificate of Merit awards, of which Dr. Skalski received five.
