Track Record and Feedback

  • The Symptomatic Goal of Care is normalisation (pain is back to normal or better than normal).
  • The Biomechanical Goal of Care is to change the usual pattern back to normal (1).

  • No patients were imaged
  • No serious spinal pathology was suspected.
  • 25% of people presented with more than one painful MSK concern

An ‘early recovery’ was seen in any MSK concern with Fascia First Chiropractic in comparison with a Placebo measure for acute low back pain (Probability of Recovery Curve) (2).

Historical Recovery Times of Low Back Pain (3)

  1. Chiropractors in 1972 took 12.8 visits to resolve 80% of MSK pain cases
  2. Medical Doctors in 1972 took 7.3 visits to resolve 70% of MSK pain cases
