Track Record

Fascia First Chiropractic (WBC Bristol) Sept – Dec 2019:

The Symptomatic Goal of Chiropractic Care is normalisation (pain is back to normal or better than normal).

  • Normalisation occurred on average in 2.5 weeks (range 1-4 weeks)
  • Normalisation took a mean of 3.3 treatment visits (range 2-6)
  • Of the 20% who did not normalise in the study period 15% discontinued Care at visit 1 for unknown reasons and 5% experienced a symptomatic improvement but didn’t normalise.
  • The average pain rating was 6.5 out of 10 at presentation.

The biomechanical goal of Chiropractic Care was to change the usual movement pattern to a normal movement pattern (1)

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

An ‘early recovery’ was seen with Chiropractic Care from Fascia First Chiropractic in Bristol in comparison with Placebo (The Probability of Recovery Curve) (2).
