The survey was distributed to a randomly selected sample of 800 Australian chiropractors. The results revealed that one in three older adult patients receiving chiropractic care for neck pain also accessed other health services to manage their neck pain. The survey used a self-reported questionnaire to collect data on the proportion of older Australian patients with neck pain (with or without headache) who used chiropractic, the characteristics of chiropractors who treated a larger or smaller proportion of older people, the treatment of neck pain (with or without a headache), and the results of those treatments.
The study participants were recruited from the ACORN database of practicing Australian chiropractors, which consisted of 1680 chiropractors. The results showed that male chiropractors estimated a significantly higher number of visits (M = 12.04, SD = 8.6) than female chiropractors (M = 8.7, SD = 7.5) among their older adult patients with neck pain and concurrent migraine (t = −2.85, p = 0.005).Adams and his colleagues have started to address this gap by surveying a nationally representative sample of Australian chiropractors not only on the characteristics of the workforce, but also on the characteristics of their clinical care. Previous national surveys of Australian chiropractors mainly focused on the characteristics of the workforce. Australian chiropractors reported that they used various manual and physical therapy techniques to control neck pain in older adults, such as manipulation, mobilization, a wide range of exercises and self-management strategies. Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for neck pain in older adults. It can help reduce pain and improve mobility. Chiropractors use manual techniques such as manipulation and mobilization to treat neck pain in older adults.
They also use exercises and self-management strategies to help manage neck pain. Chiropractic care is safe for older adults with neck pain. It is important to find a qualified and experienced chiropractor who is familiar with treating older adults with neck pain.
